    I was wondering the same thing when I took it, so I tried a lower perspective to get rid of the road. The fence is still an issue, I think, but the depth of field seems to keep the bike the focus.



    I also tried it from a more direct perspective, but I'm not sure it's this bike's best angle.

    My first BMW was an '04 R 1150R. Great looking bike. I'd had it for about 5 minutes when I took this photo.

    This is one of my first photos I took while riding. It's not the greatest, but I've taken worse

    I quite like this angle a lot since it gives a much better perspective with the lighthouse being a more pormidant feature to the image, plus you get a real sence for the curviness of the road. the blurred grass does help create a level of layering to where the fencel ines (broken down fence) (another type of depth) give the grass an extension into the images as a whole... the only thing i would do is a abit of color enhament to the sky and bring up the constrast just a touch... I like it for the white cycle with the white light house..

    for everyone... there is a good though when photographing that goes... once you have taken the picture you like (found) then it is time to start taking photos.. sometimes i have 10-20 very sutdle variations of the same image.... just to get the clouds right or the angle of the bike inthe image... then in photoshop i spend a few minutes flipping back and foth between the very similar images until i get the one i feel gives me the best sence of what i wanted to show...

    pride of ownership

    First ride for my little guy. Not much of "photograph" but one of my fav pix. I think I ought to snoop around this forum and start to learn to make some better pix both for myself and for posting on the OA forum.

    But that was not really a reflection in chrome, was it?

    This is a reflection in chrome:
