Taken after a snowy night. I think it could be a bit crisper. Any suggestions please?

Lovely subject, great title, nice shot. My mod just sharpened it up a bit and gave it a frame.

Just needed some sharpening as Lynne has done.

Its important to remember to sharpen the image AFTER you re size it for EPZ, juts before you upload.

Hello again, Susan. I agree with the above comments, but felt this would look good in black-and-white. You have excellent detail and contrasts, and have chosen a simple yet very effective subject. I love my bike and always cover it up, so feel a bit sorry for this one, lol. In my modification, I converted it to mono, cropped a little from the left and added some canvas to the right, as the bike seemed a little tight in the frame, then cloned in the area. I straightened using the line of the shed/fence, and removed the dark diagonal as well as an object in the bottom right side. I adjusted highlights, shadows and levels, added a bit of contrast, sharpened and framed. Hope you like it.

Thanks Pamela. Yes it is much better in B&W. Actually it was my stepsons bike and being a teenager didn't care much about it, in fact couple of days later he lost it.
