A lovely treatment to this, whatever it was. It's almost like selective colouring, with the bright red of the tail-lamp and the blue of the spokes standing out against what appears to be a mono background.

Regards.

thanks, Bob
Did the processing a while ago but think I turned down the vibrance and then increased the specific colour ratios SmileSmile

Visually, great shot and proof that working in Raw is quite effective. Thus your decision to turn down vibrance and increase colour works quite well. I notice you have used an exposure compensation of + 2/3. Is this after Raw treatment? It is usual to underexpose slightly and then apply a positive exposition in raw. Is this what you have done?

My current first process is to apply an `auto' preset (which generally sets the exposure) and then apply a `punch'..which gives `clarity/vibrance etc.'...Have just had another look and `auto' gives me -0.50, so I must have lifted the exposure levels using the histogram sliders.
Thanks for the interest... SmileSmile

I like the blue spoke things not seen those for years on a bike! Think its something to do with wind breaking and speed but I could be wrongWink

I think they were elastic cords to stop garments getting caught in the spokes as the wheel turned. Great shot the blue and red standing out against the almost monochrome of the rest of the photo. Don

If they are meant to stop garments getting entangled in the spokes, then make naked cycling compulsory! And ten pass another law stating all politicians have to use cycles everywhere. That would mean you have to be very dedicated to politics if you want a career in the Palace of Westminster.Wink Not just in it for the power and the glory (and the money and perks).

Not sure that pluckyfilly's suggestion of preventing one from breaking wind is accurate.Wink

Well spotted, Jeff
