another photo.

Thanks to the G-man & Ropi.

Here is my 2nd published photo with the new camera.
I need to work a bit with the depth of field.
Not too happy with the front wheel a bit out of focus.
Just a little tweaking with the new camera and it will get better.

Funny you should re-post/photograph the Flea, Alex. I was researching for a figure review and was browsing a WW2 motorcycle book, happened across some pics of this bike and recalled your magnificent work which is this (well, not only this ) model.

The photos look good. I don't see the out of focus section of the front wheel you're referring to, but I do gather you've done some post-production to the photo?

BTW, Rick posted his camera settings in this post: http://www.planetarmor.com/forums/sh...2&postcount=24

FWIW, like you he's a Nikon-man (ptew, ptew! I'm a Canon-man ).

Thanks Rudi and thanks also for the link to 'camera settings' by Rick. Very Useful.
Yes, I been shooting with Nikon for years, but have my eye on the Cannon 60D right now.
Like being proficient with PC & Macintosh, I also want to be proficient with Nikon & Canon Digital SLRs. Just trying to stay ahead of the learning curve, my friend.

Here is another photo of the 'flying flea' with a wider depth of field in focus.

The bike looks great....matter of fact it all looks wonderful. The base really sets it off nicely.

Good luck with the camera fiddling!

Rick

Looking great, Alex!

The leather seat is very convincing. I like the groundwork also.
