Hardly A Harley

Richard bought me a Harley cap at a garage sale - to go with my new bike!



"Felicity" texture courtesy of Kim Klassen.

Topaz filter added to original photo of bike; background removed from hat photo then placed in this one.  Color removed from "Felicity" texture; Layer Mask added; Brightness/Contrast adjustment layer added.  Correct camera distortion vignette added.

Such a great image, and thank you for sharing the recipe! I should do more color removing from textures, would really increase their usability..

Wonderful image! I had to study it for awhile because at first I thought it was a trompe l'oeil painting. Great editing!

Lorraine said...

I love those sturdy black lines of the bike against those textures. Wonderfully done. Have fun riding!

The Harley cap and the bike goes really well together, Pat! :)

Thank you so much for joining in Photo Feedback. I really love the look that the processing in Topaz gave this image. The shadows on the garage door are a bit distracting, but overall a beautiful photo and lovely piece of art.

Oh how nice! I need that to ride around my neighborhood, although, I may not be able to make it up the steep hills around my house! =0

Wonderful B & W, I love those beautiful photo of exquisite light. Good. Greetings.

hannah said...

I want one!
Hat plus bike :-)
Do you have safe trails to ride where you live?
That saddle looks so comfy and the frame reminds me of the courier bikes of the twenties.

Anns Art said...

Kathy said...

LOL...I love how you turned your photo in to a b/w and added just enough color...great editing.

What a gorgeous share today. I love your new bike, but be still my little heart. You had me at Harley Davidson, and a gorgeous cap. I love, LOVE this share.

Have a glorious weekend dear friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Ha...very cute! No kidding---our pastor's name is Harley Davidson Jeffers. Guess what he rides to church on sunny days? :)

I can never resist a bicycle photograph! This reminds me that while there is wintry slush today, spring will indeed soon be here!

Beautiful photography, love the hat! Happy Pink Saturday! ~Diane (I am #21)

jj_mom said...

What a cool bike! I love that you have very dark and very light in this photo. The contrast really works. To me the color of the Harley hat is a bit stracting. It might be better in B&W. Also, the front tire is slightly clipped. Love the vintage treatment to the photo. It really gives a timeless quality to it. Nice job!

chubskulit said...

Beautiful capture. Love it!

The Pianist in Pink, have a great weekend!

homeschoolceo said...

Such an interesting image. I love the textures you captured. I think it is a great capture, but I might like to see it from a little farther back - so there is a bit of room on the left side. It is a beautiful image! Well done ;)

podso said...

Very nice work on the photo and it looks like a good ride too!

PrairieJill said...

Great image! Have fun riding your bike!

Envoy-ette said...

Hey that is the perfect bike! Wide side, high handlebars and I bet it has coaster brakes too!

Sinderella Studio Designs said...

Jeanne said...

Great hat to go with your great new bike.! Nice processing

Gardening in a Sandbox said...

I'll bet you are the coolest chick out and about on your bike. V

Genie said...

You need to take us a shot of you on your bike with that hat on your head. It will be fab. I have searched thru all of my mail from Kim and cannot find the link to “felicity” to save my soul. I wanted to post this week, but could not put my hands on the texture. Guess I am just getting old! Love your shot and the texture. genie
