05/10/2012 ~ Easy Rider

I'm not entirely sure how I ended up with this photograph?


This is the concept that I was after and I set out determined to post something straight out of camera but ultimately that proved too difficult ... too much chance of knocking over the chef's blow torch as I became overcome with the fumes from the deodorant I was using for the headlight.


So I gave up and shot the three parts separately then merged them in Photoshop ... then blurred the wheels ... then played around with the headlight beam ... and the overall colour ... and removed the stand that was propping the bike up ... and ... and ...


The motion blur of the bike is SOOC at least - that was achieved by taking a shot with flash then flicking the camera right.


Other than that the line between photo and digital art is pretty blurred on this one ;).



Please feel free to provide constructive critique on the technical aspects of this photograph.
