Nice picture and that is crazy but not as crazy as it appears

Level the camera and it won't be as steep

Am I the only one who sees it over manipulated. Tone back the colours and sharpness a bit and it'll be an amazing shot.

I think it depends on your perspective.
This is a motorcycle forum,,, and MY view is that the pic represents a dream ride for many. Awesome scenery with a well-packed bike representing a journey vs. a day ride.
On a photography forum,,, your points have some validity.
I think it all depends which 'eye' you're viewing the photo with.
Me???
I'm jealous from both sides,,,, wish I could be on that ride,,, and take a photo that nice to remember it by.

if you look at the photos in the current front page rotation, they mostly satisfy BOTH criteria. There are a whole lot of very talented photographers on this forum who travel by motorcycle...

We agree on one thing at least,,, there are a lot of talented photogs who travel on bikes.
And to many of the folks on here,,, the discussed photo satisfies BOTH criteria also. And the one in question deserves to be there also.
Since this thread is about photos,,, this will be my last post concerning the photo in question.
Carry on.

Let me add a recent photo of my present and ex-adventure bike: taken in front of Mt. St.Michel, Brittany (F) June 2012





P.S. IMHO dave's shot should be on the front page ASAP
