A now for something different

Hey Guys,

I haven't posted any work on here for a while now, so I thought I'd get your opinions on this.

Done for a large motorcycle manufacturer (if you look carefully, you can figure out which one)

- removed background objects
- colour treatment
- replaced decal on the bike with a readable one
- little things

Let me know what your think.

Also I know attaching to the message is considered nicer, but it really killed the detail on this. Please don't grab this image and use it for anything.
Stealing is bad karma

Thanks.

Re: A now for something different

Hi

Honestly I prefer colors on the before photo it have very rich color contrast,
you can feel the mud landscape colors like trees,sky gives us a a outdoor
adventure feel also you dont need the darkened the adges on lower part of the
photo (radiea black gradients ) flying muds give us a good perspective for the main object !

İt always depends with the taste those are just my thoughts

I personally like the color and lightning treatment. Really well done IMO.

I don't like the decal on the bike but I did not like it in the original pic either. Maybe you should just get rid of it alltogether.

I don't think that getting rid of the big BMW sticker on the bike would quite please the client. The sticker got completely messed up on the shoot, so I replaced it with a new one, but yeah I looks better without.

Put a BMW logo instead maybe.

I had a BMW trail bike for ten years btw. This one : http://micapeak.com/bmw/gs/gs_mono.html

It's not my choice, this is the brief and these bikes come out the factory with the sticker, so there's not much choice in there
