That's an editing function I wish MORE folks would use. (sometimes you have to think, "is it an inner ear problem, or am I just viewing a ride report".....)
Do you use the rule of thirds grid display?
I do for stills, but most shots are on the go, just point and shoot.

Did this change into a "photo editing discussion" thread and they forgot to update the title?

+1000

Some folks seem to have the idea this is the ideal place to display photos of their bikes in ordinary settings - photos that wouldn't even fit into a dull ride report, let alone on the front page. Over 7500 posts that could realistically be culled down to fewer than 750 that actually fit the average viewer's idea of a front page photo.

We should go back to a "don't post your own pics, only those you've actually found on our page" rule. People would have to do more RR to post their pics and storys (wasn't this the original idea of ADVR anyway?).

peace,

Tom

It still seems this picture is better than 3/4 of the ones in this thread. Its obvious he isnt riding a perfectly clean bike on a road 10 feet from the local starbucks....

Personally, I just also feel that "day trip" or just typical dirt bike day riding pictures dont fit into the spirit of an adventure touring site. While some may make for great pictures, the real reason why we are on this site is to see people who "ride the world"

Your question lacks clarity, and the photo in your post has nothing to do with me, so it is difficult to see your point. Some epic photos have appeared in this thread, but at least 90% (it seems) have virtually nothing to recommend them as front page material. Perhaps it is nothing more than vanity that causes people to nominate their own photos. It would seem that if their photos are noteworthy enough, other members will post them here.
