Great bike B!! I like #2 but I feel like a solid background shot will bring the bike out more. So we can see the holes. That cement shot make the bike blend into the wall. Just my opinion though.
YBJ2B!!! See ya at the finish line. Peace

Good morning Kingfish. Some time ago I saw your walkaround video of Verboten and I was blown away by the quality of the build. That's what started me on the RRB website .That's why I come to you with questions, you seem to know your way around. Is my finished thread okay for an entry? ?Do I have to settle on one picture? ?I appreciate your time and your talent, Holeshot is very well done

That's cool to hear man! VerBoten is still my favorite ride.
Too late to change your voting picture because it's already posted in the voting thread gallery.
Take a look at some of the other Finished threads to get a feel for what flows well.
You should add a link to your Build Journal for sure.
For future reference, I think you should have more side shots, maybe in better light. I try to mix my pics up alternating from full pics that show the whole bike with different angles, and pics that show details and doodads. Especially when you have so many cool details like your build does.
Hope that helps. You have a great build and I bet it does well in the voting! Good luck.

Had fun wearing my Shake 'n Bake Ricky Bobby costume at the Moonlight Garden Ride with about 400 bikes. I won the Individual Costume Contest! - Lots of fun riding with Average Joes and E.T. among others. - SHAKE 'n BAKE

I made this costume using a loaf of Wonder Bread, Two boxes of Shake 'n Bake, and a checkered picnic table cloth. :D

It paid off to look goofier than normal too. I won a $50 bike shop gift certificate and about $20 in other goodies.
