I've used GIMP b4. Anticyclone and I were talking about it this afternoon. He uses it and likes it too.

Here are a few of my pics for Rick's suggestions; No photo editing used on these.

Thanks, I like how with the pelican and kyak pics you kept both subjects off to one side. I like that effect its nice to me... Also how the river divides the terrain of hardwood and evergreens and it tells of the journey ahead. I'll shut up now and leave it to the proffesional

I've never used Elements but I believe it has many of the features of the full edition I use. At work we have CS2, but Photoshop 7 is still a great program and you could probably get a copy on ebay for cheap if you like. Or, you could try this software. At the very bottom is the option to buy, but just below is a free version that will probably do most of what you need:

I agree on the pelican and kayak photos. The standard rule of thirds says that you place your subject off center on one of the "third" quadrants of the image. It can be broken on occasion, but is generally a good rule to use. The only thing I'd do is take my scissors and remove some of the water in the foreground on the bird image. When shooting ice it sometimes makes the image work better if you can find something darker to frame it with and most of the time bugs and such require specialized lenses, though some of the upper range point-and-shoots have a Macro setting that can be used to shoot insects and plants. I think the kayak photo looks pretty good as it sits.

Yea, that's a cool photoshopped image. I've seen a similar technique used in some television commercials and even in Schindler's list with the girl in the red coat. Makes the bike really pop out doesn't it.

Just because I do it for a living doesn't mean I'm always right. I think everyone's opinion here is valid. You know what they say about art...

I believe most everyone has said that the 27th would work for them. So barring really bad weather, I think that's what we're looking at.

Hey check that little P&S that I posted on the other 3 threads and see what u think about it for some of these guys that need a camera for the bike. It looks like a good buy for the $$$ to me.

Thanks, T.A.

Shameless bump for a great guy

For those who do not know, Redduck also writes and has a couple books in print. Go to your favorite book site and pick one up. Thought it might be a good way to say thanks (that of course if he's getting roiyalties for the books ) plus I have read one of his works and it was a damn good read.

I did not tell him I was planning to post this, so I will not give out all his info. If you are interested, pm him and see if he'll give you an author's name to search.

I'm blushing. Thanks so much for the compliment Trophy. And yea, I have two novels and a few photo books out. One of the novels is out of print, but there are a few used copies on Amazon and the other can still be ordered, as can the photo books.

I have to say I'm really looking forward to this ride and shoot on the 27th. I think it will be fun and I'm sure I'll learn as much from everyone else (I always seem to discover new things through others enthusiasm) as you do from me.
