image perspective help


I need some advice about perspective with this image I am working on.
The original supplied to me was just the bike/rider so all other elements
I have created with room to crop the picture, but I keep looking at the image
and something just does not look right.

Any pointers/advice you can offer up would be most appreciated.

Many thanks

Re: image perspective help

The 1st thing that grabs me is the blurred foreground compared to the sharp subject on the bike...... that does not make sense.... shouldn't the subject have some motion blur?

Re: image perspective help

Try moveing bike from center. More to right to make a feeling of the action. Show that he is riding not standing.

I would think about other set of backgroud and tightening it all. If You cannot get some nice background with race track... crop it to see only bike with some part of road. If You manage to get backgroud, with some turn of the race track, keep it with wide crop. Get rid of the sky...

Remember, bike is main thing that people focus on, not some sky or background if it is not anything interesting. I thinkg those are most things that make You not satisfied with this picture.

Look for an inspiration:

Re: image perspective help

I see what you mean with your issue with perspective.

Two things jump out at me that would make your image look a little funny.
1. The two sides of the track do not match as far as width goes.
2. the inner corner (the side with the berm) does not look like it was 'taken' with the same wide angle lens as the rider. The closest part looks like it should be larger (and possibly moved further left) and the furthest part looks as if it should be slimmed down a touch.

I hope I was able to help.
