PS Cycles November 8

Playing around tonight a bit with Photoshop and ended up with this. It reminded me a little of that old A-Ha video. These are a special troop of Fairfax police who are a sort of "Blue Angels" of motorcyclists. Right after I took the shot, I heard a voice behind me, "Uh, you might want to get up on the sidewalk now." A step up and two seconds later, the lead guy made a sweeping curve turn that would have gone right over my foot .. and then some.

Nikon D70
1/6400s f/4.5 at 62.0mm full exif

other sizes: small medium large auto

We call that newspaper picture rework. Looks indeed like a picture cut out of a newspaper. The grain surgery makes a good job here as one can see.

Why am I thinking Jon and Ponch? :) Nice shot.

Interesting effect. Are these Fairfax, VA police? I never knew they did this sort of thing.
