Messing with pics...

Last month I had some time off around the holidays and decided it was time to paint my panniers. Pretty sure the PO had a couple of no/slow speed tip overs and the pannier lids took some abuse. As long as I was painting, I never did like the silver top box color, so decided to to do all 3 lids at one time.

Flash forward a couple of weeks and the paint job turned out as good as I could have hoped. In fact, the original paint looks drab next to the new. Decided it was "picture" worthy. Started there and the attached pic is what I ended up with after messing around some. What do you guys think?

BTW- That pic is not photo-shopped.....one take. I wan't to tweak it some eventually, but this is the raw pic.

Can you clarify what you mean by "strait up"?....as in "no ghost image"?

Yes.

I do like the picture but would like to see your paint.

But now worries if it is any kind of problem.

I have to say, the picture tells us and shows us nothing.
How about posting a picture of the bike.

Re: Messing with pics...

I think I miss led you guys. I started out with the goal of taking pics of the paint job and then let my creative side run amok. The pic I showed was just what I wound up with after having some fun.

I had a "make shift" black'd out studio set up in my shop to take the pics in, but had to take it all down b/c I needed to have my shop back. So, no new pics for awhile. When the weather warms up, I'll have to drag the bike out into the natural light and get some pics of the paint job for you guys.....
