    Thanks!

    Well, basically the lighting with a standard shot was a bit off, it was a weird time of the day. So, by making the exposure longer the camera was able to make the dark spots a bit darker, and the lights a bit lighter. I thought that this would look good considering the color difference between the green/brown and the orange of my bike.


    Also, the water in this was moving a bit, by exposing it longer i could get the reflection of the bike in it by creating that "glassy" look.

    Post processed in Lightroom. Lightened up the shadows, darkened the brights and de-saturated the colors.

    Very cool shot. Just so I can see how much of a difference post editing adds, can you post same shot, pre-editing?

    FANTASTIC SHOT westcoasttrekker !!!!

    What "I" would REALLY like to see is some info on the camera used, speed, lens, aperture setting, etc., and other pertinent info so I can LEARN to take better shots myself... Yeah, I know there are plenty of "Photography Forums" out there, BUT as long as WE are showing bike photos, etc., I sure would like to learn to use my camera better...

    Just my 2 cent on this AWESOME thread!!!!!! :clap:clap:clap:clap
