OK I'll give it a go. I'm only a novice but here's my opinion. The shot just isnt that sharp. If I was doing it for a big print I'd want it to be tack sharp. I like the angle though and the bike is cool. The clouds are a little blown too. I'd clone the traffic light out also. I noticed that you shot at ISO 1600 with a shutter of 2000. Wouldnt it be better to go for a much lower ISO and a slower shutter speed, after all, the bike aint moving! And maybe go for F 8 or something to get the whole bike in focus, not just the rear wheel.

Other than that, I like it.

Mick.

I'd like to see the background blurred out more, or possibly turn the background B&W and keep the bike in color, that might be sick. Or a wide angle from the rear tire stopped down so the front of the bike starts to fade out. Looks like the photo is a little out of focus though. Nice bike, wish I could build those.


Beginning the slow learning process....:D
