I like both images, Alda, but as a metal worker, I particularly like the emphasis in V2 of the heat colored muffler, abstracted from the motorcycle.

Hi Alda.

I think the picture that needs to be discussed more is V1. I know you were going for the exhaust but you have got a fair amount of the Yamaha XTR1300 there. The amount of blue colour on te exhaust makes me believe that it was not an accidental part of a process of welding together, it can look like it, blue, copper, bronze colours appeared when bikers and mechanics started their own 'developments and upgrades' but then, the blue was almost as wide as the copper and the golden rings. This is a big motorcycle, end of motorbikes talk now.

On V1 I think you were so much focused on the colour so other things escaped your attention. Are you happy that a part of the wheel is missing?
I think you should have shot it from an even lower angle. I might had been tempted to zoom out a bit more, or make one backward step. I thought of a vertical frame as well which could contain more of the wheel but if it was shot with the existing settings it wouldn't have looked good. On V2 I would expect to see all of the exhaust pipe. It's getting late I may add more later.

My partner works making metal parts for machines....
He talks about the shine factor. Your images certainly show that off perfectly

I know nothing about these machines and it's only my opinion to me you have captured a feel of power and great color and tone. To me often less is more and they look great.
Regards John.

Thank you for that Grin. It was not possible to get a wider view, as the bikes were parked about 1m apart (and there were around 200 of them), so I had to squeeze in. I also wanted to crop it this way Wink. As for V1 - yes, I wanted all the colours in, the blue of the seat thingy, the yellow of the spring, the gold of the, um, gold thingy lol. I wasn't focusing solely on the exhaust GrinGrin

Nearly all motorcycle exhaust change colour with heat some more than others. Usually the faster one goes the more vibrant the colour. This one looks like the rider may have been exceeding the 30 & 70mph limits Wink but there again you don't buy a bike like this to go shopping on. Smile
Nice image and very well caught.
I hope that these bikers did not try and talk you into becoming their bitch? Blush Wink Smile

Hehehe, no David. I did have two hyperactive 4-year olds running around, and that doesn't exactly invite male attention lol. Wait 'till you see the image I'll post for my Silly Sunday image Wink

V2 is more obviously focussed on one thing: taking the wider view of V1 leads to a long search for a composition and framing that will include all the right bits, and exclude extraneous parts - even without the close parking constraint that Alda notes!

It's the sort of time the 10-20mm zoom comes in handy, if you have one: within the constraints, this is brilliant - and not just the colours!

Nice, either one, but V1 works better with a different background as in the mod.
