Creative Cycling pictures

Rules for this thread:
you can only post replies if you also attach a picture

Further to Contest 11 please feel free to use this thread to showcase some of your photography and creative skills.

I'll kick this off by re-visiting my AX seatpost picture. Some photoshop work (a spot of healing, high pass sharpening, a little crop and a touch of vignette) has resulted in the following.....

I like the idea and would like to add that you can only post replies if you also attach a picture like was proposed by our contest winner Rasmus :D Moderation will be very strict :wife: and in the hands of Movr 8-) :wink:

And for not breaking the only rule here is another picture of that post LJ showed, but this time from the inside:

Here is my "creative" picture. Nothing spectacular but I liked the color, the nature and technology mixed together.

Yes it was just for a quick presentation on the website. I wanted something a little special.

Yes it would have been good in the contest but the hubs weren't received yet :(

Ah crap, you noticed I forgot to add the picture :lol::lol::wink:

The one with the Colnago looks nice!!
It might be slightly to light in the light area's but you certainly found a nice place for the shot :D Did you take it with the new camera and lens?

I need to get out again some time to take some bike pictures, it's been a while since I photographed anything bike related.


here's a little 'fizik', to bad the view from my window isn't as green now as it was back then.
