Inspired by RSK's posting of the Roadster I decided to post this. Shot taken at a local bike garage specialising in old British machines. The process was much the same as Rons in the way that I took the image in HDR with + and - 1 used either side then tomemapped in Photomatix. I did not use the nix silver efex software on this but I did desaturate and took the vivid colour sliders right down...there may still be a very slight tint to be seen.

Hope you like it

Hoi Brian,

Very nice that you do this for Ron !

Funny to see how the garage is arranged. It reminds me of my youth, when I drove moped.

Good capture, taken with a good POV. The PP is superb !

Tfs and greetings to Ron, ;-)

I like the atmosphere you have caught in this indoor shot, Brian!
The picture is well taken with amazing focus and contrasts.
Light and exposure are praiseworthy.

Several times, I have driven Royal Enfield 500 cc in India and it was always a pleasure to enjoy riding the bike in any season.

A nice dedication to Ron!

Best wishes,

Hello Brian, I like what you have done with the shot,taking most of the colour out of it.The sharpness is very good.I do like all the paraphernalia of the workshop,it adds to the charm of the scene.In fact the motorbike looks as if it is coming through the wall!
I think that it is good when ideas are sparked by seeing another members pictures.
Well done.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Bri,
I like your PP work,your choice not to use nix worked well with this image,as I like the very slight tint on the petrol tank.Is this from the interior of a small motorbike repair shop or from someones house garage, where they appear to do great restoration work,the bike looks like it's being brought back to life, by someone that knows what they are doing.Not sure if I would have tried for a shallower DOF or not ,due to those bright exhaust pipes on the background shelf? Thanks for the dedication Bri, feels better than any smiley:-)

The vertical format seems to worked well in this composition. You did a wonderful job in creating the final image, very impressive. Great lighting and good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
