"Harley Parking Only" - Arizona
Coming across this old Harley Davidson motorcycle at a location that mainly features old cars and trucks was a great find. Processing and enhancing it was a little bit of a challenge due to the busy background...I started enhancing this 3 photo HDR image by processing it first in Nik's HDR Efex Pro software. From there I used Silver Efex Pro to desaturate much of the background and edges to separate the bike a little bit from the background, leaving color in certain areas that I liked - such as "The Other Woman" truck in the background...I then used Color Efex Pro 4 software to bring out more detail, to add a slight vignette, and also to soften up some of the background a bit. Additional layer masking as well as dodging and burning in Photoshop...Lastly, a very subtle photo texture from FlyPaper Textures was added to finish the look..
