    ^ Nice pic and nice bike ... Pegasos (Pegasi?) are tempting.

    Mate great photo, put a fuel tank (or other parts) and a few hand tools by the crate and it would be a winner

    Thank you. I was actually timing the motoplat (which will probably die as soon as I start the bike) and thought... lets see what happens if I leave tools all over and then take a pic. I think NZRalphy had some good ideas.

    The inclusion of the glasses is brilliant - it adds a human touch and it leaves me with a story "I wonder what he was doing". Top job!

    Next take?? this could add a bit of pop...go put a light behind the closest bike, hide it so it can't be seen and shield it (perhaps use a torch) so it doesn't light the background (the black background is good) it may add a bit of a hard-edge-definition. Or I could be wrong :)

    Are you shooting in RAW? In post process I would decrease the exposure a wee bit, up the contrast a wee bit, then brush-burn back exposure (bikes, tyres, top of the tank) to 10% of the photo, a wee bit of definition to all, and a wee dark vignette. :)

    There stood a castle here up untill 1756 when it got broken down for some reason (leaving the gatehouse intact).
    In 1990 the villagers had the castle rebuild via a steal frame ... and it brilliant!
