Challenge: Bicycles II (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D
Lens: Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM II
Location: Iceland
Date: May 8, 2008
Aperture: f9
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/125
Galleries: Sky, Transportation
Date Uploaded: May 13, 2008

Camera Raw convertion, shadow/highlight, crop, curves, match color, NoiseNinja and USM in PS CS3.

Took my camera and my daughters bike, put it in my car and drove short way from my home to the bach on this beautiful evening . I took the bike out and shot first some photos by an old hut(uploaded one of them in the ABC... challenge). Some people passing by stopped and watched me lying on the ground while shooting, then carrying the bike and the equipment to the beach below and wading in the water to put up the bike as you can see it in the image. I am not much for such attention while I am shooting, but it was worth it.

MANY THANKS for great comments and votes!

Nicely integrates some known challenge-topping elements with the bicycle silhouette. This ought to do well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2008 02:10:09 PM

Beautiful beautiful beautiful. I wouldn't change a thing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/17/2008 08:08:23 AM
I think the thing that bothers me about this is the front wheel shape not being complete. But you seem to have gotten the bike sitting pretty straight to make for a nice silhouette... and I don't see the kickstand down?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/16/2008 07:05:43 PM
WAY COOL!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/16/2008 10:34:17 AM
I am sure that this will be in the top ten.

05/16/2008 10:08:58 AM
I think a road bike would make this picture better. Pretty sunset though.

A little too slick, a little too set-up for me but a sure Ribbon contender. Good Luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/14/2008 02:29:03 PM

Beautiful. I guess this one will do very well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/14/2008 02:43:48 AM
Great lights and dynamic, but a bit too cliche, I think. The composition would have been more effective if the shadow of of bicycle would have been complete.
