Well, I've been trying to get a decent shot of mxmark when he's on his way to work, but grrrr, I know I have some blown highlights on all that chrome, but otherwise, I think I did okay - still need more practice! Anyway, here's the Valkyrie!

hi dianne-

you can't prevent specular highlights on chrome if you're shooting in sunlight, just accept it :smile: you could always shoot on an overcast day for more even lighting, or try shooting close to or right after sunset.

Thanks RIcky! I need tons more practice!

so was this at the dragon or no?
LOL, nope! The Valkyrie mascot is a dragon. We plan on riding the Dragon Tail up in TN when we can coordinate grandma watching the 3 kiddos. You can count on me having a ton of photos when we make that trip!

Super shot Dianne
Thanks Gale! With not much time to get out because of rain - I'm shooting anything that moves! LOL!

nice shot Dianne...

black and chrome is always a challenge!
Thanks Paul! I know I need practice, need to have more time to set up my shots. I hope to get some photos of him on a stretch of road or something. Just gotta get better weather. Too much rain.
