    I thought it was about great photos of bikes. Forgive me for not realizing that there is only one great photo of a bike, and that you already posted it.

    We could make this thread about great photos of bikes. Do we want to open the photos for critique? I have some ideas on how to improve the image you posted. It's a great subject matter that can be tricky to make remarkable.

    The white is overexposed.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    I won't wash it before photographing it next time. That'll fix that problem.

    Consider the possibility that the bike really is THAT white. It's so white, in fact, that it's amazing the thing can still dance.

    It's white, but it's not so white that you can't determine the contours on it. Stop your camera down a bit and get a better photo with more contour expressed.

    White bike - overexposed on the front panel. See how it's completely washed out?



    White bike - exposed correctly. See how the shadows show on the white panels? I have more trouble taking pictures of this bike that aren't burned on some portion of the bike. I'd imagine that your bike, with even greater expanses of white is even harder to get a good exposure for. I've learned to park this bike under a tree if I want even a hope of getting a good shot. The shadows will allow the camera to find an exposure that works for the whole scene.
