I did not have time to take any new shots this week so I went through some of the 8000+ images on my external hard drive to revisit some old favorites. This one was taken of a friend of mine who rode cycles with me while we were attending the NMIC at DIA for a year. We both had 1100cc Yamaha V-star Classics. I think this is a timeless image even without the sepia tone treatment. I made a half hearted attempt to remove a car from the scene back when I first made the image but was not happy with the result. My good friend Eric, after sharing similar impressions of this image, took the liberty to remove the distracting elements of the original image. He did a great job, and I added his work to my gallery here. Thanks again Eric.
