    It is an old vintage steel bike, bought in 1986. With those hoods and the first cable guide halfway back on the top bar, that's the way they did them back then. With modern bikes they come to a cable guide near where the headtube and toptube meet so have to be routed in front - visible on Shimano, but buried under the handlebar tape (cleaner) with Campagnolo.

    Visual Reality, the lighting looks good in your shot, but the eyes look a little weird, too bright and in the inner corner of her left eye (our right) the color looks different? The B&W background doesn't work for me, especially on the edge where some of her hair is black. Still, good shot, did you use flash? I'm working on flash stuff myself and will post soon

    Dennis, that was some gutsy PP but it really works! Thanks for sharing your process, good tips

    I like this one. I might crop her out of the middle a little more though.

    Thanks.

    No flash, and the eyes were enhanced. Contrast/Saturation were used on the iris and dodge to enhance the whites. I'm surprised you didn't like the black/white background, but I can understand due to the difficulties I had in making it look right. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to select around a bunch of hair, even with the Quick Selection tool. The reason I did it was because it was very dull and distracting and I couldn't leave it as it was. I had to make the subject stand out more and that was the best way.

    I've been riding bikes with drop bars since the 196, well before the Beatles broke up and I've never, ever seen cables routed like that before, including on either the Ross or the Peugeot we purchased and rode in California in the 1982. The layout just seems strange but I guess if that's the way it is then who am I to argue.

    Great shot. Good use of the shallow depth of field and very nice colours and contrast. Well done.

    Tori, thanks for your comment.

    Here is an advertisement that will show the cable routing. While it was 1974, hadn't changed in the 80's. You will notice that wasn't limite to the Eddie Merckx model, but their 'lesser' models as well.

    I was going to post a full picture of the bike, but this link has about 15 photos, including a couple of the bike. Beautiful countryside to ride in - and not flat!
