Eric, thanks very much.

Mark, Cheers mate - had to go to the archives for this coz I don't seem to be able to get out and take any phot's at the mo!

Cheers Dave, hope the Bahamas are treating you well.

Greg, thanks very much - I thought the B&W had more punch, so I went with that as my upload.

David, thanks - I really like B&W, it seems to enhance the detail.

Gary, thanks, and you haven't gone mad, you did click 'n' comment on the previous version that I deleted - Contast was a bit weak on that. So thanks for making the effort to comment again, appreciated.

Iain, thanks mate - and that's one big beer in your PF picture Smile

And thanks to the rest who clicked - I noticed some bike fans there so I'm glad you liked.

Be good, be lucky...

Great tones and composition. It tells a story and features Norton's, so it gets a thumbs up from me!

Like this one Gary.
The Old Bikes with the veteran racers works well in Black and White.

Andy, thanks very much, shame you can't capture that sound too.

Pete, Would have been better if they'd work period outfits, beggars can't be choosers though.

Thanks again for looking.

Great image. Very sharp and detailed. Good B/G movement blur and I dont know why but I like the fact that the riders faces cannot be seen. Nice to see a good B+W shot.

Chrissie, I dont know much about bikes, except that these two bikes are fine examples of 50/60s British engineering, from a time when Britain led the world in that field.

Kinfatric, it was the cooling down lap after a hard race these two had been at it hammer tongs for a fair few laps on bikes from a different era, guess they were wondering how theyd survived.

Elizabeth, thanks very much.

John, thanks mate, although not sure it is Gerhard, but 100% its Wayne. Ive a shot from the celebratory lap where you can see their face. I checked the Brooklands Website to confirm the details, but I think Stevie spotted it.

John, cheers it needed something because the light is rather harsh

Iain, Im not sure about the large version Smile, to me its not as good as my 1280x1024 backdrop. Also the details seems to have suffered a little too :-(. Never mind

Stevie, youre on the button their I checked the Brookland website and it had results as Gerhard as No2, Wayne as No1 and Jamie as No69. So I went with that, even though the smack-hats were wrong. Checked my folder last night for another upload and noticed the celebratory lap, and its Jamie. Thanks anyway, glad you liked.

And for all you silent clickers ta muchly, appreciated.

The black and white tonal range is fine Gary and compliments the riders and old machines era well. Good exposure.

For one moment I thought it was an old image. Great shot with excellent tonalities and very appropriate for B&W.

I can't quite explain it, but this works so well in B&W. And I usually prefer colour for almost everything.

A super shot and the correct choice in B/W imo.

Looks like a good capture of a pair of Manx Nortons once the tool of it`s day at the Isle of Man TT. You don`t see this sort of comeraderie amongst football fans.Looks good in B&W
