When I was ten years old I started carrying a picture of a Harley Davison "Hummer" in my wallet. In later years I owned a small bike and drove large
Harleys and a 600 bmw belonging to friends.
Anyway, I shot this Hand held inhe parking lot where I live.
C&C welcome. Freddy

I like the idea and the tighter crop, but I think the shot is a bit lacking in clarity. Maybe compression is to blame.

A Harley just went past my open window as I was looking at this shot -- LOUD!

Nice color. It would be interesting to get in tight on some of those reflections on the chrome.

Adam, what did you mean by "compression is to blame". That may be important for me
to find out. Freddy
