Brussels, Belgium – Harley-Davidson – HDR

Brussels Harley HDR

NIKON D300, Nikon 18-200 VR, HDR in Photomatix

Here is a cool shot from Brussels.  When I walked down to the Grand Place during the day that Saturday from my hotel (20 minute walk).  I passed this Harely parked next to a restaurant.  Perfectly positioned with the buildings in the background.   They are the Palace of Congress.  I had always wanted to take a Harley shot as an HDR.  Any chrome and shiny parts would reflect nicely!  I had my chance and kneeled down and waited for people to pass by.  I took this hand held with 5 exposures and post processed in Photomatix. 

Cars and bikes always look great in the HDR format.  After seeing this shot…I’d like to try more!   After I took it and looked at it on my camrera screen I noticed the lamp post in the rear view mirror.  Not planned and a nice added effect!   As they say on the Harley website….Let Freedom Rumble! !
