The wonders of photoshop. This site is covered in photos of mysteriously levitating bikes. The original photo will have had a stick placed strategically.

mate, I would be stupid if I would degrade my beautiful photos by photoshop!
Nice bikes should be photographed with creativity. If you shoot from the correct angle, then the stick will disappear by themselves and you don't need photoshop. :wink:

look here please

the same pic from other perspective

you see the difference?

For the above image (koga) I've used a metal rod which is confusable with spokes. :wink:

...and the same technique here

Cheers
