Triumph Scrambler May29

Triumph Scrambler

I just bought this new Triumph Scrambler and I am in love with it. I just got it a couple of weeks ago and knew that I needed to take some shots of it since it is such a beautiful bike. It reminds me of those old World War II bikes without the sidecar. Some of you may be thinking Paul Newman but I’m pretty sure he drove a Bonneville in The Great Escape. Anyway, I just recently sold my sport bike that I had because I was going to fast with it and I wanted something more comfortable and capable on going on some sketchy roads since I plan on going on a cross-country road trip with it in the near future. This bikes is all that and more. It rides almost like a dirt bike and handles awesome. I’m officially a Triumph fanatic now. What really sold me was the look though. I love the vintage style that it keeps while still having some modern parts on it for performance. Hope you guys like it! Let me know what you...

I just recently bought this awesome motorcycle, which I hope to post pictures of soon, that I have been riding around everywhere. It’s a Triumph Scrambler. If you have never seen one they look a lot like the old World War II bikes. Without getting too much off topic, this has been taking up some of my time, along with dealing with various other things since I just came back from deployment. Anyway, I had to wait a bit in order to take this photo because I had wanted the sun to set right between the pillars of the pier. It just took a little readjusting of my position with the tripod and voila. I took this as an HDR but only used this technique to bring out some of the details in the pier that would have been to dark otherwise. I took a whole bunch of shot to try and get the water as best I could also. The bracketed shots were taken at -2, 0, +2. I combined the TIFF files in Photomatix and processed the whole image in Photoshop CS6. Hope you like the...
