    solo cap, flush mounts, and fender removal are now required :big grin:

    Humm... if you wanted the picture to be focused on the bike, then it's not all that good. The background is not differentiable from the foreground enough, so the bike doesn't stand out.

    You need to blur the background.

    I guess it has to be a Ducati to get some positive feedback out of you.

    I did look for the unpainted lots, but none offered a view of the bridge, town lake, and downtown in the same shot :hs: Beggars can't be choosers. Photoshop can fix it, but I'm really trying to conquer untouched pictures first.

    :nono:

    As it is now, its visually distracting. The subject of the picture is the motorcycle, not the landscape.

    Let me start off by saying I hate you. Today is the first warm day we've had in a LONG time in Mass, and by warm I mean mid 40s.

    As far as the pic, it's alright but kind of busy. There's a lot of background in it for a pic of a motorcycle. Keep shooting, you'll find the right balance :bigthumb:

    P.S. Nice bike, but I'm a Honda sackrider :fawk:

    So you're saying I should have zoomed in further on the bike itself?
