B&W Portrait of a biker.

By Dave87
This was my first upload on EPZ but with all that chrome what a nightmare of a shot to select. Because the chrome on his engine was too bright and a few other things I decided to take it down. I should call this biker portrait my breakfast special because I play around with it some mornings whilst eating my breakfast. Thought I best upload it again before I ruin it completely.

Thanks for looking and wish you a great weekend.

Dave.

So, what's so wrong with the chrome!! This is super - typical biker pose (brings back memories of the 70s). Great in mono.
Tomorrow, you're uploading something from the 70's??
Looking forward to it.

absolutely superb Dave, a cracking portrait with an extra something. The mono really adds to the mood as well

Looks pretty good to me. Chrome is a nightmare to photograph!
I have one old shot that I keep going back to and reworking, it gets addictive after a while.

A very fine image, Dave, and your occasional dabblings must have been to some purpose because I can't see any offensive reflections or other interderence at all. Excellent - hope you don't take it down again!

Yea, I always did like this one Dave, but this certainly has the edge on the original. Would be even better if the biker was female!

Wow! You have time to PS whilst having breakfast?! I don't even have time FOR breakfast!
Great shot - good work so far! I like this one, although the background lets it down I feel.
