I took a pic of a coworkers motorcycle and fixed it up as a poster...
Would like some constructive critique.
Anything to make it look better or is it good to go the way it is?
Appreciate all comments...

Excellent picture. Adding a border will help since it's too light on the right hand side.

Why not create another version by adding a picture of your friend with gear (taken with holding helmet in hand etc.) to the right of the picture for his personal album.

Love the composition and the effects.

I don't think there are many ways to improve what is already there. I like the border idea, but other than that, you've got a great poster here. I would just like to know where you come up with the creative ideas for stuff like this.

I really like it a lot. (Getting my bmw bike soon too).
I think it's fine as is, and would do well as a poster.
If youre looking at different options, try angling the gradient to the same angle as the X (about 45 degrees?), and lessen the dark-light difference in the gradient. Maybe try the slogan at the bottom too.
Really nice work.

That's an amazingly sharp and visually appealing shot. Great job! I tend to agree about the border - it would help the right side. Other than that, I think there's very little to be done to improve on this image. Great job!

Looks pretty good from here. I'd comment that the the "G" in GSR is blending into the BG a little too much. It may look better at full size though, or be monitor-dependent. The printout would be the determining factor. Just keep an eye on it.

Nice work. I like the truncated "R" a lot. Bordering would be a real plus.

Thanks all,
glad you like it, can't wait til monday to show my friend...

I'm going to have it printed as a 20in x 30in poster.

As for the border, when it is framed that will take care of the border problem, if I was going to use it one the web then I would go ahead and put a border on it.

I appreciate the replies,
