I've seen a couple of these posted on here but yours is the first that defies gravity.

It is Sutton Harbour yes. I used a piece of perspex and mild Photoshopping... apologies for the valves.

Very nice looking bike and photos.

Is it possible to take pics like that on my simple Panasonic Lumix compact? Is there a name for that technique, getting the foreground really sharp and the background blurry - something I could google? Thanks!

Depth of field is the term used, in this case shallow depth of field. It's controlled by the aperture of the lens (thats the f-numbers such as f/4), as well as the distance between the subject and the background, and the focal length of the lens.

If your camera has an aperture-priority or manual exposure mode then you can control depth of field to an extent although a long lens helps.

Thanks for the info, I always like those types of photos, especially for showing off bikes! I'll have a look at what my little camera can do.

I forgot to mention sensor size as another factor - better get that in before someone points out the error.
