The good, the bad and the ugly...

This photo of a Yamaha has a nice clean back­ground and fore­ground, which also con­trast nicely with the colour scheme, but if the pho­tog­ra­pher had held the cam­era lower it could have been much more dy­namic.


This Tiger Cub looks re­ally nice and the an­gle is lower, show­ing off the bike. But un­for­tu­nately the back­ground is so close and so messy you can hardly dis­tin­guish the bike. And is that a plant grow­ing out of the fuel cap?


Break­ing the rules. This Royal En­field is right next to the back­ground and has been shot with a wide an­gle lens to fit the wind­mill in. But the wider lens has helped keep both the bike and back­ground in fo­cus.


Even pro­fes­sion­als get it wrong some­times. At the Moto Guzzi fac­tory part of the old fac­tory has been sym­pa­thet­i­cally dec­o­rated with graf­fiti. To make the most of this the pho­tog­ra­pher, shoot­ing for the of­fi­cial press shots of these V7s, has used it as a back­ground. But the colours are too sim­i­lar to the bikes and be­cause they are close to the back­ground ev­ery­thing is in fo­cus, which pre­vents the bikes from re­ally stand­ing out.
