I was admiring the beautiful bikes
at a chili fest in Grand Rapids and
couldn't resist shooting this cool engine.

I don't know much about bikes, but that's a nice couple of shots. Donna

Whew. I'd hate to have the polish job, but very nice photos.

Great shots, very clear for all the shiny surfaces.

Nice pics. Are there more?

You did not have any blown highlights, despite the fact that there is a highly polished surface and direct light hitting that.
Would you mind telling me (us?) how you did that?

Cheers,
RealMash

Thanks to all for the kind comments.

RealMash: The way I see it it's all about angles,
like in a billiards game.

In this case there were a lot of balls bouncing around.

I started with a head on shot and moved the angle a few
degrees to the right with each sucessive shot and managed
to hit the sweet spot.

(I have my obsessive moments )
