This is my Technic Lego (8422) motorcycle (height about 8cm) that I got in 1995 in front of my Yamaha FZS600 Fazer (height about 100cm). At the time I got my Lego one, I had no license nor the money for the big one in the background.
I think this shot is funny and that is why I took it. The technic lego is a good representation of real technology and I still love to build complicated stuff.

Light by the Sun, exposure bias -0.33, two x sharpening in Irfanview. The image is resampled and then cropped in height only.

Very Clever. I wish you had had a better background.

Not just boys toys. At 7 my daughter had a Yamaha 60 and I had a 175. But your are right on . I love the little one. Great Pic. The building in the background is a little distracting with the grey, white, then the blue sky. Had to look for a minute. But great subject, challenge met, great colors, good focus, nice crop. Really right on pic. Great job well done. PTL

Is this what they call a mini-bike? The size comparison of the two is a great idea. The DOF is excellent in this picture. There's a lot of background distraction here like the power pole and the stump on the right. But I do like the portrayal and comparison of the bikes. Nice job with that - Inspzil

This is a cute picture. I like this one. Everything in perspective. Nice shot. Good thinking.

The telephone pole sort of interferes, but then again it too represents technology. Nice vivid color red, and cute that there is a mini too. Grayce

Heheh clever.
Could have done with a better background. Would certainly be better without the telegraph pole.

Very cool!

like your point of view.
wish the background weren't so busy.
the small bike could almost pass as real!
It is a much safer way to play :).

Needs sharper focus and also I think it would have more appeal it the telephone pole had been cropped out or the front bike was moved so that the pole was not in the pic.

Excellent picture, just a shame about the background.
