    A good friend of mine is a professional photographer, and thought the bike would make an interesting subject.

    Easy answer, the true focal point is the sunglasses, done for a potential future marketing piece and to add to his portfolio. All of the "non-helmeted" shots that he did were done at under 5 mph on desolate forest service roads.

    Beautiful shot. And let me chime in as another one who'd love to see the RAW photo vs. the post-processing.

    Why is this so important? Not trying to be difficult, but I thought the original posted by westcoasttrekker was cool and not over processed. Further he even mentioned what he had done to the image. There are many people who believe that a photo should never be touched. I can tell you there are famous 35mm film film photographers who used dodging and burning to adjust the images in post processing in a dark room. The only difference between now and back then is the post processing takes place on a computer, with significantly more control over the final image.

    Just enjoy the photo for what it is, not for what you believe it should be...

    cant speak for silverspurs or LeftCoastMan, but for me, it was simply curiosity's sake
