    i was bored and started toying with some ideas, but did i go too far?

    i think maybe just a tight crop would work, but this was something that i have had in my mind for a little while. i personally don't think it works like it did in my mind, but i figured i would get some second opinions...

    Yeah, I'm not a big fan of having borders within a picture. Nice pic, otherwise.

    But if you made the whole background b&w, and kept the motorcycle and rider and color, that might look cool.

    To be honest with you, when people do noticeable amounts of work in Photoshop it put people off. It takes away from the raw feeling that a picture is usually trying to portray. Its probably just me but when people do the whole B/W then 1 color object in the picture it kind of says to me the person cant make the focal point of the picture “pop”…but then again people like different things. Just my 2 cents

    I figure he was just showing us where he wanted to crop to.

    Much better with the crop. Quite punchy.

    i like honesty...

    i felt the same way about the picture. thanks everyone for reassuring myself. i do think the crop would be nice. but i am not a huge fan of selective coloring, i may still try it though.
