Welcome back, Vito! Nice concept - everything but the sky looks so dark on my screen, tho - I'm going to have to look at it at home:-)

thanks monkey, the lights don't look real, and there isn't a person riding it, but it looks like it's poppin' a wheelie....lol

btw....everything is dark, but you can see the road pretty well....the trees are silhouetted....its actually kinda weird how it worked out...lol

Well, time to get my feet wet, how about this. I used Photo Shop Elements to change perspective, skew, selectively motion blur, clone out the stand and sharpen the final result. Just took about 20 minutes so it is rough in places.

Let me know what you think.

Photosbyvito, true, it's dark, but the idea and the light effects are really great !

iacopo, a good work with the refelection ! Well studied and well positioned ( and good work on the front wheel !). I also like the final composition.

monza76, mmm, yes ! There's only one thing that makes me wonder : maybe, maybe, adding a small amount of motion blur along the borders of the fairing and the dome would increase realism.( btw are these the correct names for carenatura and cupolino ? I'm sorry, my dictionary author doesn't seem to be a fan of motorbykes and some common terms looks like being missing )
