This was a fun one to shoot. First I had to attach my tripod to the bike, using straps and ropes. Then adjust the camera (I used a ND 8x filter, to get a motion trail on the trees), and program the remote. Last but not least, actually ride a bike with a medieval armor on me!

I know it is over processed as it is now, but I am too tired to get a better result before some sleep. Hope some will like it anyway.

Edit 19/04:

Ooooh! Thank you all! Didn't expect such a result, I am very happy. I knew this armor I had since my brother's wedding would be worth a shot, I was waiting for the right challenge. Glad that some found it funny :-)

Hehe :-)
I had an armor because the theme of the wedding was "heroic fantasy", and my brother wanted his guests to be costumed. I decided to be noticed by all ;)

04/12/2010 10:42:07 PM
Very clever and well captured! I'm hoping this is on the back of a flatbed truck or something as the rider would have some mad blind-spots. Good luck.
