According to its owner it's had paint, new exhaust and indicators - apart from that it's pretty much stock.
Holy cow, DangerDave, you really know how to photograph motorcycles. After 10 minutes on your site I had to keep the tab open so I can go back and not miss anything. I have tons of questions I can ask in your other thread.
But the shots of this bike: you got the assist from shooting one of the most beautiful bikes I've ever seen. You use a flash on your camera to brighten it up?
Cheers - yeah, as a rule if its shadow is between me and the bike - I use a speedlight.
I have no objection to using HDR in PSD either if that's not viable.
But I try and shoot with the sun behind me wherever possible, but in this case of the pics above I was wanting to put the Gold Coast high rises and surf as a backdrop and that's not possible at any time of day - so I used the flash.
I also like the results from using the flash with a polarising filter.
