Took this and did not like it as the background was too cluttered.

C&C please on new background and the general PP of the shot.

You did a pretty good job of cut & paste for the casual observer; but you left some green bg in the lower left around the edges of the frame; and the bg should be blurred a bit I think.
How about showing the entire bike?

Wish I had taken a shot of the entire bike side-on. Yeah a little bit of work still needed to remove original background. Will blur background even more.

Many thanks

And just don't sharpen it?

I'm probably the odd one out here but I actually prefer the original. In the post processed version you've over sharpened the main subjects and I find the details in the building distracting.

I too wish you'd taken a picture of the whole bike side on. I couldn't have resisted doing so.

I think you went a little overboard with the clarity slider slider and sharpening in the second one. What about just an aggressive vignette to cleanup the first one a little?

Me too. The building in the back kind of clashes with the helmet. I love #1 tho.

for all that work, the building is nothing but a distraction... the first image is much better - especially with @randman's processing
