I have Bren's permission to upload this shot of one of the two Tritons at the Ace Cafe display at the Coventry Motor Museum.
There is no question of it being a comparison or competition between the two shots, rather simply my attempt to depict an historic icon of my era.
I was never a rocker and boodled about on a 500cc AJS which then, was about as fast as I am now.

It has been isolated from its neighbour. The 'Rocker' wall mural behind has been obscured with a plain background, and one or two little distractions removed to, hopefully, make it more visually appealing.

V2 for me Jack. V1 has just a hint of movement in it.

There's little point my offering any critique; I know how dificult it was to get these!

Good grief this brings back some memories.

I had one of these in 1967-68. A 650cc 1964 Pre-Unit construction Triumph Bonnie engine with 10 - 1 compression pistons and needle roller big ends. Frame was a Norton Dominator I think and it went like hell! Nothing to touch it in its day. Wink its a wonder I'm still here these days.

Thanks for the memories and two great pictures as well. Smile

Difficulty in obtaining the shot has no bearing on the outcome Bren. You critique away to your hearts content, my friend. GrinGrinWink

David, as we grow older and recall the days of our youth
Quote: "its a wonder I'm still here these days."

becomes an almost perpetual refrain. GrinGrinGrin

Chris, I wouldn't leave it too long. I don't know how long the Ace Cafe set-up is due to remain there. I'd at least give them a call.
The other alternative, of course, is the National Motorcycle Museum at the NEC, just 6 miles north of Coventry.
800+ bikes in 5 halls - well worth a visit.

Both are good - technically excellent and super records. V1 is very much the better general image due to your being able to isolate the bike with a simple background and no ropes.

I've looked again at this (V1) and I still think it's not quite sharp but I can't improve upon it.
I like the replacement rear wall though and I'm impressed that you've managed to remove the driptray. So far I've only manage to do that in one shot!
I still prefer V2, even though it's busier. I just think that technically, sharpness, lighting and so on, it's the better of the two despite its composition and the inclusion of the ropes etc.
Shame my hand's in it!

Bren, the reason you can't improve on V1 is because it is actually slightly oversharpened.
I didn't see it in PS and only noticed it once it was uploaded, but if you look at the front downtubes, the rear periphery of the rear wheel where it meets the light grey block, and the exhaust dispersion rings, you can see it quite clearly.
You can on my screen anyway TongueWink

We can soon lop your left arm off, if it'll make you happier GrinGrinGrinGrin

Well spotted Jack. I hadn't seen or thought of that. 0.5 of gaussian blur does the trick. On a download of this anyway.
I'll keep my arm thanks. Next time, I'll move!
