Threw together an impromptu shoot of one of my close friend's bikes.

I think they came out well after post considering he never had any "proper" pictures of his bike.

Nice light on it. I prefer the first two. You have too much perspective distortion in the second two since they're at 17mm and it's making the front wheel get all wonky. Stop the lens down to f/4 or f/5.6 and put the bike farther away than the background. There isn't enough DOF to keep the whole bike in focus at 2.8. I'm assuming this was with a 70-200L f/2.8?

#3 is a great angle but prefer the colors in #1 and #2. Great set allround.

nicely done, i think the wideangle got a tiny bit munch in the last photo deforming the wheels since it was at the edge of the lens, watch out for that , the 17-40 is great, but can be VERY distorting, especially with shapes that our brain clearly knows to label as round, or straight, ect ect.
