Kawasaki Ninja heading into Duffus Dip (mostly mono)

blog: Bikers and the Falkirk Wheel

 

Because I've had no new shots worth uploading lately, I thought I'd revisit my bike shots from early April, with the idea of more cropping/rotating (see here for what I'm referring to).

 

This shot was already cropped, but I thought I could improve its composition. After reframing, there were a couple of blue trash bins in the spectators' area (top left of shot) which were slightly distracting, and desaturation seemed the best way of de-emphasizing them. I ended up applying the effect to the whole background, while the biker himself was given a little sharpening.

 

Quite happy with the overall result.
