Very Awesome!

I love to photograph and retouch bikes as well, I love the look of them. Scared to death to ride one, but I love them still - lol.

Hi Bert,

As always a really nice job.

Just one thing doesn't quite ring true. The reflection in the gearbox casing is not in accord with the surface which the bike is now supposed to be sat on. It is in fact a reflection of the surface the bike was sat on prior to being extracted.

Yes very awesome. Good catch on the reflection Gary. The new image has much more pop...saturation,contrast and separation from the much more interesting background.

thanks gary, yes i know and believe me i tried to remedy that in various ways .
unfortunately with everything i tried i lost the shine on the chrome and therefore decided to leave the reflextion as it was.

still something to find a cure for

thanks everyone, for the keen eye and comments!

cheers

Wow! Very nice work. I especially like the colors you chose to go with - it catches the eye without being too flashy.
