I am always amazed at the photo quality of these pictures. Makes me really want to learn how you all are doing these things.
Anyways I find myself wanting to take more pictures just for the sake of this type stuff while I am out riding.
I used this picture I bought from Killboy a couple years back.
Let me know what you think.....
For a first time playing with the software, that's pretty darned good.
Opinions vary, but for me, this is just on the edge of being overdone. I'm not a fan of the super processed photos. This one brings out the details while not going in to the cartoonish region. I think if you pushed it further, you'd be disappointed in the results.
Keep it up.
Incidentally, I downloaded the Beta version of Lightroom 5 the other day. The terms of the Beta sort of indicate the product will be shipping around June. Probably be an introductory discount at that time as well. I haven't had time to play with it much yet, but first glance, it looks to have improved enough to upgrade from my current version 4.
