    New to the forum and to photography. Would like your thoughts on this photo. Thanks

    p.s. It looks a little soft because of photobucket's resizing.

    please dont take anything i say with too much weight. I am new to shooting so take what i say with a grain of salt or how ever the saying goes

    i find the backdrop kind of distracting myself, maybe if you got all the krinkles out it may look more professional?

    and the light from the light bulb and the outside light (im assuming your in a garage with the door open?) kinda give different colors to the white sheet behind the bike, soo maybe try to close the door and set the white balance to tungsten mode or something with just 1 light source could help possibly

    Would you like your money back?

    Use shallower depth of field to blur your wrinkled background.
    Move the subject away from the background.

    Use the same kind of light all around and you will have less problems with white balance.

    Give the subject a little room to breathe.
    Crop is too tight.
