Chrome - クロム

Hardy Street, Central Business District, Nelson, New Zealand

Nikon D200
AF Nikkor 35-135mm F3.5-4.5 @ 66mm
F4, 1/30, ISO-100

End of the series.


  1. The series gives me a quite important lesson, lighting, positioning of myself in the strong high noon sun light. Inner city snap is quite challenging especially, I was mostly taking candid shots.
    The B&W conversion is another part, I do try not just converting to the monochrome but see how the each of colour value changes to the appearance of B&W image.
    I definitely come back to the same theme someday in the line.

  2. The chrome is beautiful. I love looking at motorcycles, but not riding so much. :)

    I think you are being successful in this b&w conversion.

    I like the thought process you apply to learning with this subject matter Ben. You're doing really well in your progression through b&w!
    Thank you for mentioning the inspiration my similar image created for you.

  4. Nice motorcycle photos. It's been a long time since I saw a Moto Guzzi. Don't see them in the States much any more.

  5. Thanks Jam.
    I see quite exotic motorcycle time to time. It's include quite old to new. I like those that using lot's chrome to photographing.
