Well I went for a rideout Sunday with a few mates, took a few photos, I wasn't trying to capture anything arty really just to grab a few shots of the bike and the boys.

I came across this, had a bit of a play with it, made a HDR image out of it then layered the bikes over the top and left them in colour, I think the contrast of the Ducati's over the moody looking sky is excellent, I really like it considering it wasn't planned, lol.

C+C welcome :D

Can't see the image, and when I try and follow the URL it asks me for a password.

Its a nice image, selective-colouring isn't really my taste but it kinda works here. I'd love to see it in glorious full colour too. :D

I like it, sky would maybe look more dramatic if a little darker - my word look at the Chickchick strips aswell ;)

Photo looks good, something just seems off. Seems almost like the bikes are almost out of focus. Maybe you could bump up the contrast and apply USM to just the bike layer, followed by Shadow and Highlight. Just throwing out a couple of tips to help make the bikes pop.

Ok, some good tips there guy, I'll give it a re-touch later one. Chicken strips indeed, its a mates bike and he is just running in a new set of tyres, not had the weather yet to get them to the edge but he'll get there.

As for the focus, I think I was using f11 to try and get all the bikes in focus and then have some nice DOF for the background but obviously something went a little wrong.

Might start with the RAW again and try from there.

At this time of year I don't blame them for taking it easy, a few Ducati's together, in the Midlands, umm - DSC, maybe Ducatisti, perhaps DOC - thinking a Ducatisti rideout though !

Just prompted me to lookout an old pic of the 749 to play with, as said before, I like your pic, I am a fan of selective colour though !

I like the full color and the Selective. If I had to pick though, I think I'd go with full color. I love the color of the brick road and the yellow house in the background. The sky's color is great and keeps your eyes from moving away from the bikes while still providing height to the shot.
Lastly, I'm kinda new to the Post Production stuff, how does one do selective color?
