    I think there is insufficient DOF in #1 in the immediate foreground, that the background needed supplimental lighting, and the photo lacks mid-tone contrast. It is good the specular highlights retain detail, but it's unfortunate it's at the expense of most of the shadows being blocked (no detail at all).

    #2 is IMO poorly composed resulting in a very unbalance photo, not to mention the numerous self portraits w/distracting background in the photo.

    Presentation is always a matter to consider and not having a blank line between the 2 photos detracts from both.

    There is a saying - necessity is the mother of invention.

    All light - zenon flash, incandescent, flourescent, sodium vapor, sunlight, whatever - is natural (a photon, is a photon, is a photon).

    You shot with ambient light.

    Light is what making a photograph is all about. Your photographs will show if you just accept what light is available, or if you take it to the next level and control the light. :thumbup:

    By the way, I'd appreciate it if you would at least capitalize the first letter of my name.

    I feel the focal point should have been on the very tips of those mean looking arrow shaped devices (I'm not a motorcycle guy...) using a bit more depth of field so you still keep some detail in the background. Contrast looks great. BW = awesome.

    Second shot should have been a bit tighter with more emphasis on the curves of the exhaust pipes (if they are called that - the big pipes leading to the exhaust - English isn't my mother tongue either...).

    Keep going!

    Well, in all fairness, your name isn't the only thing in his post he forgot to capitalize. :)
