    As with your other pics the bike seems to be just a prop that you don't shoot in its full glory.

    Perhaps if you shot the pictures showing the whole of the Harley and your model then they wouldn't appear to be so fragmented or isolated: use the bikes to your advantage and not just a bit of them to your disadvantage.

    YOu have to be careful when photographing Harleys not to elongate them depending on what angle you shoot them from: you could try to get your models to look like they are morphing from the bike ...

    Thanks Tony ... I can see how you came to that conclusion and I appreciated your feedback.
    I intentionally set it up like that as I liked the way that the sun lit up one half and the other half was in shadow ... and as I was playing with light and shadow, i thought it kinda appropriate: the photo is as is but could have been set up in many other ways ...

    As a rider - and sometimes photographer - of American Vee Twin motorcycles, I feel that the angle of the bike elongates it too much and distorts it inherent beauty. If the bike was at a better angle -one that would represent it in real-time proportions - then I believe it would be much more impressive.

    That is the problem when photographing this type of bike: you have to know the best angles and what works and what doesn't.

    No offence, but I feel the background it a tad too predictable.

    Shall I shut up now?

    Do some experimentation with the natural angles of these bikes ... I know a few motorcycle photographers and I can tell you from them that it is not as straight forward as we may think.
