Anacortes Washington (USA) holds a motorcycle event each September. This year’s was the 25th annual “Oyster Run” wherein 15,000 motorcycles descend on a town of 9,000 otherwise peaceful, if somewhat eclectic, folks. Everyone is well behaved. Everyone gets along remarkably well. Everyone seems to have a good time. See my “Oyster Run” portfolio folder for some of the bikes, bikers, and biker babes from last Sunday!
For the record, I spent the day shooting with [user]jbsmithana[/user] who lives in Anacortes and part of the time, we were shooting together. I have no idea if he will submit, or what, but he's pretty good and I'll look forward to seeing what he gets!
I am bummed about Basic Editing. I would have liked to tone down the hot spot on the fuel tank, and there are a lots of specks I would have preferred to clone out. These’ll probably hurt the score. In any event, the event was fun and the photos will be a fun reminder of it.
