FIRST IMPRESSION: Great subject, and one that I know is a personal reflection of you (no pun intended). Good choice of frame color to echo the artwork on the motorcycle.

CHALLENGE: Meets the challenge.

COMPOSITION: Good choice to use the same handlebar shot on each side (flipped, of course). Using both handlebars would have broken the symmetry and, while it might have been more technically accirate, it would have taken away from the end result in the viewers eyes. The flow across frames, fromt he one handlebar, through the fender of the motorcycle and into the other handlebar, is a nice touch.

TECHNICAL: As usual, your technical aspects are pefrect. The time that you put into this shows in your end result. Great job in keeping the reflections in the chrome under control.

CONCLUSION: A great subject that should appeal to many a motorcycle enthusiast. Extrememotorcycles.com should consider hanging this in their showroom. A well-deserved top 10 finish!

Thanks for sharing and good luck in future challenges!

I'm not a "metal and engines" guy, so I would have been surprised if one had told me that a motorcycle photo would grab my attention like this one has. Really, really well done. THe only small nit is the title. Not so much the words (though I'm not a huge fan), but the font and placement. Maybe a bit more subtle, to let the photography and motorcycle do the talking.

Whoa! Great color, lighting, and cropping. Love your "theme", and you pulled your photos together very well to make a cohesive and engaging triptych. One of my favs!

Super. I wish I could see it in a bigger image - center section is a little small for the detail.

Nice. Great colors, excellent focus and composition. I like the framing and title as well.

Awesome setup and layout...this is one idea I may just have to copy..lol This is easily something a biker enthusiast would want to hang on their wall. Nice!-10

This is really well done - nice simple but striking images and a strong layout. Text and borders that complement rather than detract.

Neat shot. WIld paint job. Not sure I like the focus on the air cleaner....?maybe the tank should of been included or completly left out? The V-twin alone? this is good, don't get me wrong.......I love it.

The colors and lighting real make this stand out. The overall balance and symmetry works to keep the eye from just gravitating to one spot. Excellent work! 10 -danny

This your work, or Jesse James' work? (The bike, not picture)

Nice Shot and Composition, I give it my top award for the challenge. Maybe would have put a little more composition in the middle photo, ie.. tank detail. But overall excellent.
