I like the composition of the second shot, the first shot is too tight on the bike, doesn't give it much personality. Just my opinion. The color looks good though!
the shots a bit boring and i don't think the tone mapping does anything for it other than adding a halo. Photography would really come alive for you if got some lighting.

Can you tell me what hdr data
I think the shot shows a lot of character & a really nice bike. Good work Roger.
Nice shots!! (and nice Pan Head!!!)
I like both shots for different reasons.
#1) The focus is on the builder but the bike gives you a bit of context without being the subject.
#2) Nice overall shot of the builder and bike. There seems to be a bit too much brick above him. Maybe crop it down a bit.
The is pretty good. I think it would be way over done if you went any further with it.
I don't think that the first shot is tight enough.
Try it by cropping to just above the front fender, and to his back.
The second shot just has to much wall. I think it would look good as a square photo.
If you shoot him again, move out away from the wall, and blur it out by using a longer focal length and a small aperture.
That is not a good looking wall in my opinion.
thanks for your comments.....why do you think a tighter crop on #1 would look better? Shot #2 is ideal for a potential cover, plenty of dead space for the header and other wordings...as I said above I should have cropped it for posting here....there wasn't enough space to move him away from the wall, a lot of the time on shoots you have to make the best with what you've got. I agree a plain wall would have been better....I think maybe you mean a larger aperture .
