Another mid-afternoon walk around the block, another lucky shot. Of course, when you walk around the block on an almost-daily basis, it isn’t really luck. Today this gorgeous motorcycle was parked right in front of this complementarily-colored mural- jackpot! This became my favorite image of the week.

Digital Darkroom. A harsh midday son made this image a bit challenging to process. The combination of glittering bright chrome and deep shadows was a lot to overcome. I tapped up exposure a bit, increased contrast, shadows, and whites, while lowering highlights and blacks. On the bike itself, I increased shadows and clarity.
WIRR stands for Weekly Image Rich Ruh. This regular feature on Das Has von Ruh will show and describe my favorite photo created during this weekly period. My weeks start on Mondays, as does the WIRR. I’m hoping to include commentary on the story, the setting, the specs, or the sentiments, depending on the circumstances.
