    Actually, it's a very nice photo. Unfortunately Photobucket makes a mess out of many photos due to resizing and their compression process. iPhone photos can be very dynamic, but figuring out where to focus and give the iPhone a chance to do its color balance and exposure when set on the "auto" setting is always hit or miss.

    Here are some of the things you did right - the tree is not growing out of her head (you'd be surprised how many times that happens); the shot is well composed - not a lot of wasted space with sky, but the forest background gives the viewer the perspective of depth and the vastness of the area (there is also some atmospheric perspective going on there); Your wife is not centered, but offset (rule of thirds), and both the bike and she are in the lower third (this adds "movement" to the photo rather than everything being static by being centered). Both the placement of the bike (heading toward the left of the photo) and the shadow coming down from the upper right present leading lines out of the photo suggesting more is out there to be found and (seeing that this is a motorcycle forum) and explored; the horizon is pretty level and not smack dab in the center of the photo (look at the ground).

    Yeah, you could have gotten in all of the rear tire, and maybe all of the tree, but overall, a pretty good photo.

    Great pic, Dave. My wife & I were in Prutz, Austria, in 2015, riding with lovely friends from Muirfield. Neighbors! Love your beautiful Country, as well as Austria. We were well chuffed, and I have to say it's brilliant!

    Tell her you hid a diamond on it somewhere. She will look then.
