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 was one of the 1940s styled military displays (you might spot the little joke in the title), again this was a three shot HDR made in Photomatix, it was then taken into Photoshop and a gradient mask adjustment layer was added using a black to foreground transparent gradient. This top layer than add it's opacity reduced to slightly desaturate the picture.
Finally an apology folks, I haven't been able to get around and view your pictures or pass comments yesterday, and probably today and tomorrow either, we are busy fitting a new kitchen here and my internet time has been severely limited. I hope you all understand - things ought to get back to normal next week.
Use control and your mouse scroll wheel to zoom the picture/page, then control and 0 to reset to normal size.
