Lurking in the Shadows

“I shot this Yamaha R1 at the back of an old church yard in Brisbane. There was minimal lighting at the location with enough street lights in the distance allowing me to achieve the bokeh in the background during post with Photoshop.

Light painting is something relatively new to me and it’s fast becoming an obsession of mine. The end result is just something you can not obtain any other way.

The final shot is actually the result of 10 (ten) exposures overlayed and carefully masked in Photoshop and processed with Lightroom.”- Kirk Bentley

    Very nice and difficult photo (black to the dark…). What exactly is the red-yellow item at the rear wheel?

    Registration label in Australia. It would be called a tax disc in the UK, not sure of the US equivalent – but it has the date of the registration expiry on it.
