I've been thinking of doing this for quite a while now. Up til recently I have been a professional photographer. I owned my own portrait studio several years back and have always enjoyed taking and looking at great photos. I would like to start this thread in the hopes that it will inspire all of you to post some of your best shots.
here's what I would like,
1 post your best bike related photos. (bikes, bike parts, or simply bike related)
2 post as many as you like.
3 post only shots you took.
4 post your best or favorite shot, not a crappy shot of your best bike.
5 feel free to comment and discuss each others photos. no bashing, or beating up anyone please.

if anyone is interested, I will open a thread in the break room on photography basics. ask any photography related questions and I'll do my best to answer.

I'll bite. Here are a few I took. Love the shadows in the multi bike setup Scott! I also love that Iver Arch Truss! Nice photos.

Great stuff! the bike race crash shot is Epic!!! the looks on the crowd's faces is priceless!
I've been playing with an HDR effect program as well, you come up with some really surreal looking stuff. here's one I did a while back, along with the shot I think you were mentioning heavily adjusted. it may take some of the magic out of the other shot, it took me a while to get rid of the chair in the other one! maybe I should do a thread on photo manipulation...

This phantom was living in a box for four years waiting to be restored. The other day I decided that all the dents, scratches, and rust are what give this bike it's personality.

I tried to capture that personality. It's not perfect and rough around the edges. Black and white brings a more dramatic effect.
