As it says really - Lets be seeing your best photographs (akin to Singletrack photo section) BUT with retro bikes in them.

Want to see arty, stylish and well composed photographs. Rather than bikes in a garden or garage can we see them either getting ridden, or perhaps in unnatural or natural environments...if you see what i mean?

Winner gets er....something from my parts bin. I promise it will be shiney and anodised.


Go for it.

Heres an example from Gump - I like this....its outside Kenilworth Castle in the 'flatlands of Warwickshire'.

I tend to put a little more effort in pics normally. I will give a brief overview:

Below TrailRunner was about the 5th pic I ever took. That is probably also the reason why there is a decending horizon!

Image

..of course I tried to correct :wink: :

Image

This pic is taken on a spot in the right-above corner of the above pic and of course in another season:

Image

With pic I also had the colour palette in mind:

Image

BTW the same stem as in Gump's pic :D Edit: No it isn't!

Rafty Funnel in Drente:

Image

All previous pics taken with very cheap camera. With the below there was a new digital camera and for some kind of reason I seem to end up with sharper pics:

Boss of course made really nice pics! I will post a few he has taken from my bikes.

This is also Boss':

It is me on my '88 ValleyRunner in the Dunes.

This one is also by Boss: www.duinberaad.tk

...and I know Boss recently took some really nice pics in the snow on the isle Texel. Probably he will show you them when he is back from Spain (photoshoot of course :wink: )
