Death Defying

By Actuarius
Taken at "Wheels" in Littlehampton yesterday, this is of course the "Wall of Death" (the bike being a pre-war Indian). Altered slightly for exposure and to turn into black and white - well, who could resist?

I think your treatment helps here- perhaps an arty border too?

The mention of an Indian reminds me of a fav film of mine: Anthony Hopkins in "The worlds fastest Indian". If you haven't seen it - you must. Grin

We have thanks and it is a splendid film. There were two real problems with getting a decent picture I found. The first was that the speed and radius of the wall meant I had to be very quick and accurate with the panning. The second was that I couldn't really assess the pictures at the time and make modifications to the settings as that would mean missing the show!

Nothing wrong with the image as is IMHO
