Many? I can think of just the one recently and because of this thread, its back. Awesome. So no, this thread only shows that "clever" is just as stupid as a troll.

—Pics in full sun are almost always awful.
—Out-of-focus closeups are always awful. Don’t post them; try again.
—In-door bike pics are usually awful; I can just hear that poor bike screaming to be let outside. Doesn’t matter how cool you’re decor is. That’s usually just distracting.
—We notice when you post the same pics over and over and over. Please stop.
—Excessive paragraph breaks and vocabulary the average reader needs to look up (but likely won’t) are just awful.
—BFers expressing excessive opinions are usually awful.
I thought it's worth recycling this post as I've been seeing several transgressions listed above still occurring. I'll highlight a few:

—Pics in full sun are almost always awful: Whoever told you to wait for that sunny day to take a good pic and then in full sunshine was wrong. Wait for a cloudy day or near sunrise/sunset or at least in the shade.
—The built-in mention function hasn’t worked for a long time. So if you do gugie and choose from the pop-up menu, the BFer will not get notified. However, if you ignore the pop up and do @gugie, they will. Still true, as far as I can tell.
—Out-of-focus closeups are always awful. Don’t post them; try again: I'll augment that to say excessive closeups are also awful, unless you're trying to make art. This isn't the place for that.
—BFers expressing excessive opinions are usually awful: Still true.

This much is clear:
Excessive expressions = no bueno
Opining about excessive expressions = bueno

Doc, are you opining about opining on excessive expressions? Is that bueno? Discuss.

our dear departed member Paul Brodek was a master of bike photography! His shots were usually on a shaded trail, with wonderfully scenic background, and shallow depth of field. He had kept them on Flickr.... but I've lost track of his account.

One of my own shots of a bike in a shaded area....




and a shot using the morning sun, coming in from the side...




I will say that the shade doesn't bring out the colors as well as direct sunlight.

Gotcha nlerner. Maybe this is a good place to show off my Merckx. It is without doubt the best bike ever produced and I don’t know why any bike would be made of anything other than Reynolds 653.
