super hot...trotting out the big guns...nice blending of white and black, even the cranks look good, but then I admit my bias towards Parlee?

Remove anything extraneous from the bike. Bidons, blinkies, saddle bags, etc.
Clean your steed. Dirt and rust etc isn't hot.
Take a clear photo in front of a neutral background. White garage door, grey cinder block wall... something like that.
Chain in the big ring up front, small cog in the back. Seat level, crank set extending from the chainstay if possible, valve stems at 6 o'clock.
The picture should be all about the bike with nothing to distract from it.
As far as what to change on your bike? Maybe blue or white bar tape to match the accents on your seat right off the top of my head.
Yeah. That just happened.
Telemachus has, indeed, sneezed.
FWIW, I've worked in the industry a lot longer than than he has. You may also notice that Parlee doesn't manufacture component groups. His expertise is frame design/manufacturing.
My attempt at trying to save this thread.
My training/backup bike - Giant TCR Alloy.
