Red resting roadster

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 29 June 2010 in Transportation and Portfolio.

I attended a great event on Sunday in the Bents Park, South Shields organised by Hells Angels and other motorcyclists to raise money for "Support the Troops" and "Helping our Heroes", two charities dedicated to helping the families of servicemen in Afghanistan and elsewhere. I've written more about the event here.

Suffice to say, it threw up some great photo opportunities, so I'll be featuring more shots from this motor rally for the rest of this week, the difficult part will be deciding which pictures to leave out!

This red Harley is an HDR made from three hand held exposures in Photomatix, it was then taken into Photoshop for some retro cross processing, before being cleaned up with Noiseware (free download here)

PENTAX K100D 1/30 second F/8.0 ISO 200 18 mm
