Shinko 700's right now... working on wearing those out so I can switch to my other wheelset that has fresh Shinko 705's.

Have you run 705's before? I know they're cheap, but after running a set, I can honestly say, they're one of (if not THE) worst tire I've used. I've had lots of different sets of Shinkos, and liked almost all of them. The 705's are however, are terrible IMHO

Really!?? Wow I'm surprised to hear that. This will be my third set. I LOVE those tires. Very sticky on pavement (almost like a sport bike tire) and better off-road than you'd ever think possible. And i get 6000 miles out of a rear.

They are indeed fairly sticky for what they are, but HATE high speeds (walk like crazy, especially when "pushing it" a bit) and HAAAATE tar snakes. I've never ridden on ANY other rubber that will grab a tar snake SO bad. When they almost killed me about 3 times in the middle of buttfucknowhere Idaho 2 years ago, I couldn't get home and swap them out soon enough!

I agree..... The Seattle pictures look really nice. I especially like the 1st one.

And adding the white frame around them was an excellent choice. It really enhanced the overall look and feel of the photos in this case.

It's called the rule of thirds. Perhaps the most basic point to follow in photography, and one that most people SHOULD understand, but don't. It's why most people's "photographs" suck... there's one giant THING in the middle of the picture, with no framing to direct your eyes toward the subject.

Yes, and if your successful the entire photograph is the subject.

Rules? we don't need no stink'n rules!

Ride, take photos, take photos while riding, take photos sitting around the camp fire. It's all good! Lets not start imposing a bunch of rules into this thing



I really should read up on this whole rule of thirds thing

I try to practice thirds, but these point and shoots tend to print a pic larger than the viewfinder. I notice the pics are not near as good as when I used a film SLR. I often get a lot of extra sky or detritis at the bottom of the photos. I suppose I could edit the pics, but I'm pretty much an "I was here" photographer. All that lab work is, well, it's work.

If I posted pics here, could I get an honest critique from the real photogs?
