It went VERY well. I really like the fact that, instead of taking just another sharp photo of a bike, you took a portrait of it instead.

Looks to me like plain concrete and the swirls are made from the light reflecting off all the chrome and bouncing all over the place.

Those are some awesome motorcycles! I own a music instrument store in real life, and I got a Samick digital piano in a couple months ago for one of our local piano teachers. Anyway, Keyboard Carriage company (the piano haulers) have now taken on a new client to haul for, the Big Dog motorcycle company. When I went out to the freight truck to help the guy get the piano onto the piano dollies, he had 6 of those motorcycles in a large rack behind our piano! And wouldn't you know, it would be the ONE day I didn't have my old Sony FD91 at the store with me! Every one of those bikes apparently has a custom, one of a kind paint job. Beautiful bikes!


Cowboy, that's a great portrait, too!

Guitarman.. Yes they are all custom made...The owner said $60,000 for this one.. I used Two strobes on the end of the bike and a two Wabash super flood #2 lights over my shoulder... then 4 vector sport spots to highlight the Tank,Fenders,& oil tank

Sorry Dale, let me go out of the chorus in saying "I almost like it !"

These are my reason of my almost:
- Fuel Tank, Seat, Rear Mudgard and Tyre do not stand out from the background : they are black and they seem to fade into the dark background
- The Front Tyre is cropped in the lower part
- Maybe there are too many distracting shadows on the floor in front of the engine.

Beside these almost, I like it !
