Upload & Sell: On
FLSTCSAM ... Welcome to the Forum, looks like a successful upload.
Looking forward to seeing more ... guessing you've got some Softail pics in there to show as well.
+1 @ Scott ... larger image is welcome, 800px tall is a good rule of thumb, but variance to that isn't the end of the world either.
Chuck makes a few good points. This one is also one that if you were to apply the blur test (second image below) to it, it will reveal that the tonal values are challenging to provide distinction / separation for. The BG blur that Chuck uses illustrates the point a bit at driving separation, but a good mask for the vessel/bg separation is a bit of an undertaking for selective use (intricacies of vessel) where a larger aperture at capture might have helped a bit (if that is what you were going for). Although, I think the intent for the image was the combination of both.
This is one that I'm wondering if the original color version would have helped a bit more with some color clues to help with the viewing distinction / separation. Maybe even a muted selective color might be something for consideration (original dependent).
I took a stab at it a bit, nothing to get excited about, just some skill building tweaks for a different approach. Lots of ways to skin the cat.
Again, welcome to the forum ... looking forward to more.
