my first motorcycle pics of 09

So I had been thinking the graphite color of my Daytona would look decent with a wet gloomy background. As soon as it stopped raining Tuesday afternoon just long enough, I rolled her out for some quick snaps. Let me know what you think!

I spent 30% of my money on fast cars, 30% on women, and 30% on booze. The other 10% I wasted.

that Volkening Lake and Schaumburg High School? My sister lives back there, and I live 2 minutes from there.


Bike looks damn good with the gloomy background too, good call.

I love that first shot, the background is great. I really like the way the gold pops - sweet scoot!

Looks nice. Your decision for scenery really worked out for you. I'm waiting until some leaves start popping out for me to take my shots.

Great shots! Nice and sharp, and your first one looks great with that background!

If you have a chance, try it out with a wide open F-Stop to blurr the background a bit and bring the focus more so on the bike.

Great lookin' bike by the way!

I believe that first one was @ 2.4. I didn't want to get to fast or my dof would be to narrow for the bike with the space I was dealing with... If that makes and sense. Also note these were done in 3 shot sets then hdr stitched and tone mapped in CS3. Does anyone else on here do that? I just started playing with it and so far its made everything Ive shot that way turn out much better than I anticipated. Its great when you don't have the perfect lighting and can spare the extra time.

Don't listen to that... Parts of the bike will be out of focus!

Just try and simplify your background. Both are way to busy, plus I love the bike but hate the muddy grass behind it! The first one is better but still crap, just because of the background. The bike in both shots are the subject matter and they are executed well! "Try to tell a story not be the story" - William LeMarche

Good luck with the bike!

Almost like your but without the battle wounds

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

+1 on the TOR pipe. Make sure to get the factory tune with it. I have an extra stock oem exhaust here. I plan on opening it up and removing the baffles. (I readabout it on triumphrat). If you want to swap yours out for this one, let me know and I will trade you. When they are opened up they are suppost to sound just like the TOR pipe.
