Be careful of the words you say.

Great pics!!
What software do you use for editing?


Photoshop, that's the industry standard and well worth the time spent learning to operate it, is a bitch though when you first start it up.  Digital post production is just the replacement of the darkroom, there were photographers who spent time precision colour correcting and processing in the darkroom then the okes who trusted their lab to do it for them, it's still the same with digital, no shortcuts to perfection exept for the occasional fluke where light, contrast etc. happened to be perfect and that does not happen often.  The rest is working those curves and fine tuning colour balances etc.

Excellent Report, Saw you two on Monday close to Heidelburg.
You should've caught us to say hi, with that Katoom it would not have taken a sec to catch up with us, could even have offered you coffee..

Again, thanks all ya dawgs for the feedback, it's only a pleasure to share & we hope to get more folks with those capable machines out on the dirt exploring and enjoying.  This forum and all the chat about adventure really makes me get my arse out there on the road, it's inspiring and gets us through the working days looking forward to the next gap in the diary to escape into the wind...

Great report, I knew when the double "tremendous slipstream wake" from two Tdubs hit us that it had to be the two of you coming past while we were eating biltong.

As always, great report. Man, I'm sure you could take a picture of anything and it would look good. Now I'm going to always hang around waiting for the next report.
