Re: Mike the bike guy

Good shot. Mike and his bike make an interesting pair. Here in So. Cal. there is a big interest in the custom bikes, everything from 3 wheelers to low riders to streached versions. Most are ridable works of art too.

Re: Mike the bike guy

I see a lot of potential for this guy as a photo study, and a series of great portraits. You have a really interesting subject here, so see if you can work with him to get some amazing photos. I see a portrait of him and the bike, maybe in a slightly elevated position with some good lighting at or near sunset. So many other options as well. Hope you'll work at this and show us any progress you make on this subject.

Re: Mike the bike guy

Saturation seems extreme. A tip--usually there is only one or two colors that mess things up and force you to pull back the saturation slider. If you pull back on those individually (maybe green in this picture, possibly orange too) then you have freedom to really let some of the other colors blast--super high saturation that doesn't look over done.

By looking at the image here I assume the over saturation was a deliberate fx. To me the image looks to have been partly processed by Topaz. I come to this conclusion/assumption by coloring and texture within the image. All of that being said I must say I too really like this image. If in fact Topaz was utilized I would say well done. Often times it can make an image "cheesy" with that Topaz look, but it was used well in this case.
