Especially love the second. The bike looks like it's begging me to jump on & enjoy the open highway under those wispy clouds.

I'm not criticizing your shot cause i like the sky and your pp. just a thought, if you could have raised the iso and hence used a smaller aperture, perhaps the front disc would have got into focus. i like the composition and will be using that style when i take bike pics. was the bike on a white surface? i ask because the sky is bright but there's no shadow under the engine fins. thanks for posting.

Damn, you're good... :eek:
Yes, she was on a white surface !

But you haven't told me anything about the 1st shot...you didn't like it as much !? :o

you know what? I didn't see the first shot! I must have scrolled down as I clicked or something. Beats me. Here goes. Too much empty space. In this angle it becomes more obvious that the right hand mirror is mis-aimed. and the dark lower half of the front tire isn't interesting. If the bike tire was aimed the other way, perhaps this angle might have worked better.

sometimes a very little fill flash will brighten up the under-side. once you've got your usual shots, try doing a few with the flash on and/or the camera upside down.

Thanks for the tips Frankster... I actually tried something with the 1st pic, and I find it gives it more dynamics ! You were totally right about too much empty space... :)

BMW's are SWEET machines. I like your rework on the first shot and I love the clouds in the sky above. Beautiful images both. The second shot is nice as well I like the fact that you can see that akward lump on each side. Try racing with this bad boy.....I know a few that do. =)

Your second crop of the first pic is much better. Here's another suggestion. Free. Try running your second crop thru autoHDR and see if any detail in the tire tread can be retrieved. See that hair or something hanging from the left hand grip? You can clone that out.

Not trying to make this the picture to end all pictures, but experimentation is one way to learn. then when the BIG SHOT comes along, you'll be ready.

Went out on another ride... :D
