A few from a shoot last summer. How do they look? Unfortunately all my PP is limited to an uncalibrated MBP display right now.

Like the first one wish I could see both hands though. The second one the blues are overpowering the subject he looks almost like an after thought.

Thanks for the feedback! I'll see about toning down the blues a bit on no.2. Unfortunately his selection of clothes colours didn't end up being the greatest.

thanks again.

I disagree. I really like the look of #2. The angle is great. It does put focus on the bike instead of the subject, but I still think it works well.

I totally agree with that.

I don't like the first one, maybe because the placement&pose of the bike driver seems strange to me (do bikers often hold bikes from that position?)...

Absolutely. The first is ok. The second is really great. The blue sky is true "strobist" work. Love it.

Thanks a lot guys. I appreciate you taking the time to comment. It was a difficult shoot due to cloudy/overcast conditions. I had a lucky break in the clouds to capture the blue sky.

Haha, Well,

My bike is powered by two feet. I'm not really "in" with the motor biker culture. :oops::oops::D

The top fella doesn't even have a bike anymore. It was backed over by a SUV. Since it was his 3rd bike to be written off, he decided to take a break for a while.

The bottom guy, you may notice that he is missing some plastic on the left side of the bike (right side of the photo) He only had a bike for about a week when the photo was taken.

The first looks great because if you had shot the biker the other way around, I'd never have guessed it was bike! Nice! +1!
