Perry, do you have Photoshop or Photoshop Elements? I made two adjustments to the last one you posted and now the colors pop a bit more.

Perry, first off I really enjoyed your company on the Saturday run. Anyone who has the opportunity to have Perry ride along will certainly benefit from the experience!

Second, you have a great talent for photography. I really like your composition on many of the shots. Thanks for being an essential part of our group. :cheers: Terry

I started a thread a few months ago on Expo about this very topic. Especially as it relates to landscape photography, I asked what an "acceptable" level of image manipulation was before the image actually becomes distorted and no longer represents the original vision.

Of course the responses were all over the map, but most felt like photography as an art medium meant that there were no rules, practices or accepted levels in the industry. I guess I sit somewhere in the middle depending on the intent of the photographer, but I continue to struggle with the reality that many pictures don't turn out like what you remember seeing with the naked eye.

Sorry for the minor hijack - thanks for sharing your pics Perry. They're fantastic!

1/350 shutter speed
200/10 with a 30 focal length
f 95/10?
Meter Mode '2' - Center-weighted

You use Photoshop Elements to resize the picture for the web though.

Perry shot that using his 7D in metering mode '2'. 2 = Center weighted so it averaged the shot based on the trees on the horizon.

Direct TTL metering; 14-segment honeycomb-pattern metering, Center-weighted metering, Spot metering

Ok, this is the last bunch. Posted them under the original thread but figured I should keep everything together.

1) Root making the hairpin turn on the west side of Hancock
2) Kenny's turn on the turn
3) My only pic of Tims great adventure

Thanks all for the compliments, means alot:cheers:

Terry, it was a pleasure riding in that fine machine of yours. And i'm sure glad I could be of assistance during the run.

Root, yes I did use Photoshop on my pics, only to resize them. I have nothing agains people messing with there pics, I guess it's something that just doesnt set well with me, personal preff I guess.

Perry,

That last pic of Nakman certainly does justice to the predicament he was in :thumb:

a) Just how in the world did Tim end up like that???!?
b) How long did it take to get the stains out of the driver's seat?

Yeah, that pic feels a little more like it... Bill you need to read the other thread for all the details, including the recovery.

I thought you got sketchy a little further up where that big rock kind slid down a little.. How did you get off the edge there?

I keep saying to myself, "I'd ski that slope"...:D

Someone has to have gotten out their protractor by now to measure the slope...Come on, cough it up :hill:

I'm not positive, but I think this is the rock that I tossed down the hill. I believe it kicked Tim to the right just enough that once he got in that loose stuff there was no coming back without help :o

The ground along the edge is seriously unstable, as anyone that tried to just walk over there can attest to. A couple thousands pounds of vehicle over there is bad ju-ju...

In hindsight I should have saved the rock and stuck it in the back of Nakari's 80 for him :hill:

LoL not that little thing. I'm talking about the big one on the left up past the tree just behind that truck that is right above tim's. That's where i though he went off because you have to go further to the right edge to squeeze around it.
