Just warming up for a full day of shooting at this year's Canadian National Harley Owners' Group Rally/Show 'n' Shine here in Calgary, Alberta.

How do they keep the chrome that clean (shot 2), not a hint a colour discolouration due to engine heat, great captures.

Love the 18-point sparkles on the chrome.
Well suited PP.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Dr. Beast.

My toned B&W colour comes from many many hours of of tweaking settings in Silkypix and Photoshop (using Silver Efex Pro and Virtual Photographer plug-ins) and wasting a lot of inkjet paper. I've now developed a secret post-processing "recipe" that takes avantage of the the warm tonal range offered by my favourite fine art inkjet paper, Ilford Galerie Gold Fibre Silk.

I'm not a Harley owner but if keeping chrome clean on a Harley is anything like like it is on a car, it's simply a matter of dry weather and having an Obsessive Complusive Disorder.

As for no heat discoloration, that's a mystery. Either this bike is never run very hard or there's something new about chromed exhaust system materials that I'm not aware of ..

Thank you, Ash. Those "sparkles" are merely a nice by-product of using the FA31 lens at f/16. Glad to hear my PP recipe appeals.
