slvoid is right (sigh...) it's hard to see in the photo but the 6w halogen does have a wide spread of lower intensity light out to the sides, top, and bottom. You can just about see it on the railing on the sides of the photo. The bright spot in the middle is a little wider too. Even though the very center of the beam is very close to the LED light in illumination, in use the 6w halogen is easier to ride with.
The photos are very close to what I actually saw, I was amazed. I had to get away from other light sources to get the photos to come out correctly. I used the "center weighted" light meter, not the spot or the averaging, and used auto exposure. As you can see I forgot the tripod, I just rested the camera on the bike computer and held my breath.
The plan was to show the 6,10, and 15 watt settings on the Nightrider Pro6, but it ran out of juice, and it goes to low automatically. I'll try again, and I'll bring the 2.4 watt 4aa Cateye light as well, and the homemade 50 watt halogen.
