Lovely angle, I like the placement at the side of the pavement. One thing i have heard is that when shooting automobiles and motorcycles you should try to avoid trees because it tends make a messy reflection. Where as if you did this with out trees you would have a much more neat reflection. Nice bike is it yours?

Nice picture and bike. What CC is the bike because from where i am sitting it looks tiny,
as if you could pick it up and stick it under your arm, have to agree with Tomis as well
those trees do make for a messy reflection, could have been a lot better with just the water behind.

Good pic tho.

filling the frame would be a more flattering idea. In my honest opinion

I believe its a CBR 150. and I agree with John about letting the bike fill the frame. Wide angle is a great choice for a motorcycle photography.

I didn't even know they did that in a 150, it's typically sold in the 125cc guise.

Interesting, i did not know that, although it makes sense with the UK being limited to 125 for the learner market.
