“Harley Parking Only” – Arizona

Coming across this old Harley Davidson motorcycle at a location that mainly features old cars and trucks was a great find.

I started enhancing this 3 photo HDR image by processing it first in Nik’s HDR Efex Pro software. From there I used Silver Efex Pro to desaturate much of the background and edges to separate the bike a little bit from the background, leaving color in certain areas that I liked – such as “The Other Woman” truck in the background.

I then used Color Efex Pro 4 software to bring out more detail, to add a slight vignette, and also to soften up some of the background a bit. Additional layer masking as well as dodging and burning in Photoshop.

Lastly, a very subtle photo texture from FlyPaper Textures was added to finish the look.
