Night Bikes

I shot these at a party for a friend who was celebrating the passing of a major milestone. These shots were taken out in front of his home at about 10:30 p.m. These pictures haven't been touched at all, they are exactly how they came out of the camera. The only thing I did was convert from RAW to JPEG. The lighting came from an overhead street light and the blue accent lights on the second Harley.

Holy smokes! Those are good looking pictures. I'm surprised you got something that crisp at night with ISO 100. You must be a heck of a photographer.

Nice...... I'm not a bike person (or a car person either actually) but they are lovely shots.

Question though: What type of bike are they?

[Cyberkitten shows his ignorance for the whole Blogosphere to see & point at].

Great shots, I love the blue light accents on the chrome of that Harley (It is a Harley isn't it?)

I haven't tried shooting in RAW yet/ I need to fully get to grips with my dSLR first as I've only had it since Christmas.

The blue glow is mesmerizing. You've done an amazing job metering in a very difficult situation: night, street-lit, neon-lit, chrome-reflected.

How cool that you pulled it off and came home with some really neat surprises to boot. Great shooting!

I know this is an older post, but we almost double posted on Michele's meet-n-greet, and I didn't want to short you a comment.

Plus these bikes just look so amazingly cool. I want one, just for such a picture - and I don't even like motorcycles, really.
