I know nothing about motorbikes, but found the figure on the left a little distracting from what is a good image..had a go at a mod
Compositionally I find this a little lopsided and as cats has said, the figure on the left does distract a bit but at shows of this kind, there's very often not much you can do about it. The shot might have worked better if you'd got lower down, even pointing your camera slightly upwards towards the biles.
I've looked at this and the one you uploaded yesterday and they both look a bit gloomy. Presumably, the weather and the light was against you. Again, not something that you can do a lot about.
I've uploaded a mod. of both of them in which I've cropped the bottom and RHS and lifted the gloom a little using the shadows/highlights tool.
For all of that, I still like both of the shots although I have to say (and I'm passionate about motorbikes!) that those are quite possibly the most hideous looking bikes I've ever seen!
They're not yours are they?!
Shooting upwards towards the biles can be difficult Bren (-;
Willie, that's excellent!!!
Would look better if the bike was extracted and placed on its own background, - theres too much going on around. Ive loaded a mod as an example. To do this, take a look at Complex Extractions video on EPZ TV.
Glad you like it Bren, We should start a group for bile shots!
Loaded a chroma key green version so you can replace with your own background.

It is a very interesting Bike and you captured it well under the circumstances, thanks for sharing with us.
Like others have said, not an easy subject to isolate at these Shows. I would probably have tweaked as Bren has done in Mod 2.
Due to the weight of these machines and the use of the side stand only, you are always going to get that lean, which I feel would still not look right if the Bike was extracted and a different background used. Ideally for this kind of Bike shot, I would have tried to get the Camera as low to the ground as possible, looking up towards the Bike, with no clutter and the Sky as a background, that way you are filling the frame more and can also modify the Sky to suit.

The answer is to get it right in camera and then PhotoShop isn't needed too much. I think the answer at these type of events is to either hang around until there a gap in the crowds and then snap away or more realistically is to get in close and find some interesting angles and lines to shoot.
Hope this helps.
