Creative Cycling pictures

Discussion on bikes, and whatever...

Maybe not so creative, but I think it's a cool picture. I was going to wash my bike, when this creature came from the woods to check out my bike!

I didn't have much time to take the picture, so it's not very sharp.

Just a quick one from the Lightroom archives.

I'm not too sure I like the JPEG export from Lightroom. For some reason it seems like high contrast areas get oversharpened, and it doesn't happen when exporting the same DNG/PSD from PS :?

Well, technically it's a bit of construction work, but other than that it's Nyhavn. I take it you enjoy the 35L? :grin:

This next pic is just a self portrait. 400D, plastic fantastic 50/1.8 and a 430EX. Bounced the flash off the white ceiling. No PS, just messing about in Lightroom.

And can somebody please update Lee's title to say 'Site Admin/Bokeh Boy'?

Nice effect with the flash Ras :wink: I have yet to buy a flash for the 5d. Yes, the 35L with PS to finish is quite a powerful tool when you begin to understand them.

Would you have your bike repaired here?

Thanks Adrien. I know I have said it before but Kelby's 7 point system really does get you up the curve quickly.

The composition of this is a little screwy, but you can still get the point :wink:

Nice pics and post processing LJ!
I don't like the big borders though, they make the pic look like a (de)motivational poster (http://images.google.com/images?q=motivational%20poster) :teacher: :wink:

Also great pictures sacredsurfer, the panning pic is really good.


Edit: arghh forgot, no post without a picture.

Thanks for the advice Theros, although I'll completely ignore it :wink:

This photography lark has you doing some weird kinda sh*t! Now, imagine, you're on your morning commute along a busy road, its dawn, and the light is just breaking through. You're still quite tired and not paying much attention of your driving or the surroundings until you look out of the windshield and see some geezer lay full out on his stomach taking a picture of a leg cream carton.....wtf :crazy:
