You obviously know your way around a camera, and how to frame a shot etc.
the pics of the vespas are very much like a million others I've seen before, with the exception of the one in the alley in Hull.
That's me speaking as someone who has been into scooters for years, people who don't own a scooter but like the theme may think differently.
Personally I like the slightly different stuff you've got in your other gallery - como at night, the cinquecento (although cinque fans may feel the same as I do the vespas?)
Suppose it depends on who your target market is?
Me I'd like to see pics of mopeds with a twist. The "Least crap snap" in last months scootering I really liked, there was also a picture on here years ago of an ss90 (I think) which was totally covered in surface rust. A slight difference to the polished paint you see every where else.

Great to hear some honest feedback, thanks for taking the time, there is always room for improvement! I too like the less polished look (no choice with mine at the minute!). I shall definitely look to explore those Vespas with more of a story to tell. Just need to find them!
If I had to pick a classic car I think it would have to be the 500 like the one pictured but maybe one project too far at the minute.
With regards to target audience, I would like to appeal to owners and non, although I do appreciate both are a different breed! I'll see how it goes, only experience will tell.
I reckon this weekend's scooter shootout at York would be a good place to get some "action" shots.
As well as some stationary shots.
As above, it's just my preference, but there's a lot of pictures of vespas available everywhere, bright coloured vespas against italian walls, they're all photoshopped rather than proper photos but it makes proper photos look less special because there are so many of them.
however, it is a great look for a photo, though if i owned it, i would satin black it........

on reflection, Max can't be Italian, as he no longer agrees with the following:
<every scooter could do with a pk/px horncover & yankee seat>
Stu, I think Jim really hit the nail on the head there, and again, I'm a big fan of lookking over the handlebars - it's a novel angle!
Speaking of novel angles, try and get some shots that haven't really been done before all that often. The image of the Vespa is sadly getting so worn it's justifiable to call it clichéd, so some new perspectives would breathe a bit of life into it, in my humble opinion.
Are you using film for any of these, or is that just an effect photoshopped in afterwards?
