Default i can dream, cant i?...

been playing with this image in photoshop after trying a few b&w shots lately. PP isnt my best subject but i really like the way this bike reflects light and its gorgeous shapes... it didnt need much i feel.

british craftsmanship of yesteryear at its best!

hope you like it..

john

Good PP John and beautiful bike in black and white, your work is very respectful of the original and the result is well balanced in contrast and exposure, excellent details.
In my perverse imagination, I venture to propose a very personal revision of the same image in black and white, which exaggerated the metallic surfaces and the mechanics of the bike.
This thing I can afford only with a friend like you!
