I can just about make a bracket and paint it, but I simply would not have the vision to dream up and make something like this.
I am in awe.

Thank you Liam! If it's any consolation to you, many, many times when taking photos at car/bike shows, it is the small things/details that really make the cut and nothing escapes, not even a home-made bracket that someone has taken the time to create!

Thanks chris937! Believe it or not, somewhere waaay down the road of things on my list to purchase: is Photoshop. Some of the works that people create using that software are fantastic and I'd like to have a crack at it too!

As with many tools, the skill of the user is important. I understand that Gimp can be just as powerful as Photoshop. Me, I take snapshots and crop.

crossy.gif Congrats on getting BOTY! crossy.gif A well deserved award with all of the work you put into her!

If you guys want to step up your photo game without a lot of effort, give Adobe Lightroom a shot. I've been using it on my iPad and have been getting pretty fantastic results with the images. Less of a learning curve than with Photoshop or Gimp as well. I'd call it the step between using filters on your phone and going all out with Photoshop, so the Baby Bear of editors. :lol:

pidjones, will give Gimp a look over and you're right about the skill of the user. I'm with you on the snapshots and crop, but sometimes a these shots beg for some "UnderGround CustomiZing"!

Thanks bigscheaf! Lightroom looks attractive. I have a dream of finding something like that is a one-time-pay, stand-alone application, and works really good with an aging laptop. :lol:
