Photographer’s Notes
Off to the annual motorcycle show today in Seattle.; A target rich environment. Turns out I knew one of the booth babes and we chatted for about 20 minutes. Got a lot of envious looks … a curmudgeonly guy like me talking with a gorgeous biker chick. Who knew?

Other than some background removal, this would qualify for Advanced editing.

Actually I didn't really mean the software, I meant the silver effects :) It was a tongue in cheek statement.
Fabulous hand crafted image. 8. PS: Which Harley is this? Their modern stuff is looking sweet.

Impressive array and great tones (I might have desaturated as I think the tinges of red distract very slightly). I know nothing about motorcycles, nothing about engines, but I enjoyed exploring the shapes, textures and lines here. one of my top ten.

For me this is one of the best in the challenge. The processing is great but i think having Harley part showing takes away from the image, it's either in or out. Having said that I'm still giving you a 9.

Nice image. I'm deducting 1/10th of a mark for cropping the bottom of the exhaust pipe, but that's being picky :-}
