Challenge: Wheels (Basic Editing I)
Camera: Canon EOS-10D
Location: Belleville, IL
Date: Apr 4, 2004
Aperture: 22
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/30
Date Uploaded: Apr 5, 2004

This was so hard to shoot, I had my camera on the ground on a mini-tripod. I had a ten second timer on my camera to get the shot. I had to push the shutter button, get on the bike, pull in the clutch, pull up the kick stand, shift to first, pull on the front brake, pull the throtle back, and let out on the clutch. This is the only shot I managed to get. Not exactly what I had in mind but the best I could get in the 10 seconds I had. I wanted a big cloud of white smoke behind the wheel while the wheel was spinning, but alas... I wasnt able to get it.

An interesting photo, I like the small amount of smoke and burnt blacktop. I think this could have been helped with a smaller depth of field so that background would not be as distracting.

Needs more smoke! This would benefit tremendously from a shallower DOF. (Blurred background)

I want more smoke! Good idea but the backround is too dominant, perhaps a screen of smoke would have helped?

Positives: 1) The hint of smoke from the tire. 2) The red stripe on the muffler. 3 (The sky reflection on the muffler. 4) The motion of the spinning wheel. Negatives: the brown weeds 2) the green roof

Suzuki! Keep the rubber side down. I'm sure it flies. Have fun, ride safe. I'm the cruiser type myself.

could use a better (blurred even) background nice otherwise, perhaps a bit of sharpening would be an improvement
