Default Island Magic

Hi all,

I went to Philip Island a couple of weekends ago to the "Island Classic" meeting, in this case the classics were classic motorcycles. A few examples are attached.

Nice capture (timing) and panning on #1. If you don't mind some other observations though: the bike and rider are a little bit soft and also a tad oversaturated. What lens did you use?

I reduced the size a couple of times, I think it may have lost a bit of sharpess, I will try again.

DA*300 lens, I bumped the saturation about 9% I think, but it doesn't look too bad on my machine, the next one has no alterations except ,as i said, cropping & resizing.

Thank for looking all.

Simon

I agree, the first shot is a winner.

Thanks guy's,

but I'm still not happy with the loss of sharpness when I reduce the original, I'm stuffing something up ;-)

Try reducing (resizing) first and applying sharpening as the final step.
