Bikes, Bikes Everywhere Bikes.
Our cover story has been received warmly. My thanks to those of you who have left comments or sent email. I was a little disappointed that mention of my blog was removed from the story, but people have managed to Google me, and put the two together.
This past weekend was spend scurrying to and from St. Louis for the BMW MOA open house. The weather was iffy, but the rain held off until 3:00 and by then the majority of the crowd has already headed for home. I find it hard to believe I did not have a camera with me at last year's open house! I don't leave home with out at least my Point and Shoot! I brought the DSLR with me, with one basic lens. I am working hard at finding creative shooting opportunities. I tried to take the pics that other people were not, especially people, regular members! I made a point of stopping to talk to people who had not connected. It's not hard making small talk at a motorcycle event.
I hope you enjoy my pictures, and the liberties I took with photoshop. When I first started shooting, I was influenced by the "it must come out of the camera perfect" crowd. But I've really done a 180 on that. I think it's as important to display the best picture you can, sometimes that is right out of the camera, but mostly a little tweaking goes a long way in spucing up the presentation. I am no longer the queen of the uneven horizon, it seems everything gets rotated 2 degrees!
