MO Blues Bar-B-Q and Bike Fest was reaching the "I'm totally fried point"...
16 contestant groups all laying out BBQ chicken, pork and brisket to be judged.
Its hot and steamy. My bike days were behind me. I'm beyond full of BBQ. Sweating like the out a shape couch potato I am THEN I saw this white bike. Suddenly I could hear the music. Never seen a powder job before. The entire bike was thick hard white enamel plated.

I had to share this with those remnants like myself that can understand.

Thanks Barracuba, although I'm not sure what the subject was other than a mind
grabbing, sugically clean, white bike.

I wonder if it was really ran much if the heads would turn color, hmmmmm...

Turning the sharpness and saturation up on that front brake looks pretty cool. If anyone with talent in processing would like to show us how these pictures look best to them,
go for it, but share how it was done.

I played around with a few things, but kept coming back to the original. This is with the saturation boosted only.

Hi Barracuba, I did the same. Messed around with this and that then finally set it back toout of the camera which was 6000K and not much else. I thought somebody might go for the front wheel and brake. Hit the saturation on it.

Yup, and if you didn't know better you'd think it was a sunset natural.

glad ya tried it though.

Who the heck knows where to set thewhite balancewhen your ina lazy hazysummer early afternoon. Somebody thats done a bunch I guess, but not me yet. Then againhow can a guy screwup white and chrome? Id say it was a tad ivory or eggshell white anyway:-)
