Default Help me decide...

I want to post a few pictures of my Ducati Monster on my website, so I snapped a couple yesterday when I was riding around. I'm looking for 2-3 good shots, and these are the ones I like from the shots I took. Let me know which ones are decent!

I'm buying the second and the forth pic. The others are cool but not as good for a listing due to the bright colors...IMO, that's just me but I really like the machine in nature.

You are selling to buy another bike or some cruiser parts right?

Agree on #2 and if pressed I'd go with #1. I'd say #4 is probably also my second choice but the power lines distract, need to frame it better. #3 would be neat if, ironically, the sky wasn't so devoid of clouds. It's just a boring mass of blue. Bring the bike in from the extreme corner a little and get some detail in the rock undercut (evening or morning instead of harsh midday sun), it would be better.

I like a couple with the mural in the background but the bike doesn't draw the eye at all. Those would work better if you let the background blur with distance + telephoto or large aperture to work DOF. OTOH a couple work really well to highlight the art, like the last one.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm actually starting up a small business to rent out Ducati Monsters I sold the cruiser a month ago or so to pay for the acquisition of a second Monster, and I'm in the final stages of setting up the biz and should be live by 8/15/14. It's a hobby more than anything so I won't be quitting my dayjob, but I think it will be fun to be able to offer something that's not currently offered in Denver. I want to keep it under wraps for now, however I will likely expand the scope of the business to offer one or two other cool things

Thank you and I agree. It's funny you say that because I looked at them afterwards and think the art looks better than the bike in the pictures!
