Ergh, just typed a massive description out, then the backspace went back a page instead of deleting the text..
Bike was shot on location. Designed to be viewed large. Shot on Sony A99ii with Minolta 80-200 G lens at F3.5 - you'll need a calibrated monitor too see the ground blend - overly contrasty monitors will make the ground look black and the bike float.
6 photographs used for this - 5 for the different flashes, and one for the ambient background
