Show me artsy photos of your bike
I came across this when looking for an old pic on Flickr tonight:

I remembered how strangely ethereal the light reflecting off the paint seemed. The bright lights, reflections and sharp shadows really make the photo come alive. All on accident, of course - I have some skills, but beyond pointing and letting the camera take care of it, photography ain't one of them.

But I know lots of you are great photographers. What have you got?

DD, your camera does a pretty good job!
This is one was a surprise. I noticed the bling after the shutter release. 00.30.48, on Flickr

What I like may not be or rarely is a great photo in others opinions.

Played around with exposure settings. I like this one of this bike. The only think I don't like is the way the stand propped up the rear wheel. Pinarello Montello 60 cm on Flickr

This may be my best shot of this bike. Colnago Superissimo, on Flickr

All my pics are taken with a point and shoot that is limited in what I can achieve, not that I am a good photographer. It's an on and off practice. Consequently, the quality suffers.

Figure most people are using phone cameras- so youíre ahead of the game.

This is one my my favorites from my old Bianchi.

I found a couple more that I like. Iíve always been mesmerized by the look of a detensioned wheel.

i'm not sure what 'art' is, but let it rain down on my bike.

Hopefully @djkashuba will show up here. He's posted some great photos in the "Where Did You Ride" thread.

Thought it was cool that the arborist left some character to the stump. Which matched well with the bike of a deceased friend.

Great thread, DD! There are some excellent art shots in the posts so far. Mine are nothing special, except to emphasize my favorite color.
