Don't take me wrong - love the pic, wish I had on like that of my kids. Just don't think it is front page material.
I get what your saying, but to others advrider is as much about a lifestyle as it is about motorcycles. Adding the lifestyle into the photo is what this image was about. It's representative of a different kind of adventure, but an adventure none the less. Posed or not, it's about variety. Isn't a bike parked in front of a landscape technically a posed shot? What about a photographer who rides ahead to setup and capture a ktm or gs hitting a water crossing or jump hard?
The father's garage, a cheap led light, and my camera where the only tools used just as an FYI. No studios here.
