I attended a great event last 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!
Didn't get the lady's name but she was a pleasure to meet and chat to, never stopped smiling!
Two layers in Photoshop, the top layer has a fair amount of gaussian blur applied, then a layer mask which was "painted" on with a black to foreground transparent gradient, the area around her head was "painted" out with a soft edged black brush.
That's the last from this event for now, so if I run out of material over the next few months, I know there are still plenty of good shots in this archive to display if necessary.
Use control and your mouse scroll wheel to zoom the picture/page, then control and 0 to reset to normal size.
