Sorry if my rant offended at all. It was mainly directed towards the legions of people, many pro photographers included, who use the term photoshop as a dirty word implying fakeness, and also love to hate the use of HDR techniques.

I think good HDR is when you can't tell HDR was used. But that is just me. The thing that looks odd is there are no shadows. Non by the bike or the clumps of grass. Looks like the bike is floating. It's still a good shot. And I like how you turn the mirrors out. I'll have to remember that.

jconyer, some of that is God given talent, just because you have a great camera doesn't mean you will take great pictures. But is sure does help. There are a lot of great cameras out there and they are getting cheaper. This spring I got a Canon G12 and love it. I hardly carry my 1D and L lenses any more.

Some of these shots were taken with a fisheye. That is why the mirrors look turned out.

Hahaha! Excellent! Talk about altering reality, I didn't even recognize it! Great photos as usual, you set the bar high. I heard the switchbacks were damaged, were they re-carved anew, or am I misinformed?

This is the nicest photo of a bike in a parking lot I have seen in a while, photochopped or not.....
