    So I spent an hour out at Samford today, and lucky for me the bikes were on not long after arriving.

    I merged them in PS and you can't tell that they were. However the edge is really crappy. Chopped everywhere etc but if I wasn't so far zoomed in, or had him at the top of the shot, it could have been merged perfectly.

    Thanks
    :)

    Thanks. I'm using a cheap ebay "massa" branded UV filter. Mainly as protection glass though. No lens hood either atm. (waiting for that to arrive from fleabay)

    I'm really trying to use manual mode as much as possible, and forcing myself to look at the different positions of the scene for lighting and trying to balance the exposure between the two variances. From behind the bikes it was quite difficult as the first 30 or so pics were overexposed, then adjusted settings and it went well from there. I could adjust in LR, but too lazy atm. lol Trying to process some waterfall shots I did yesterday as well.

    :)

    OI.. that's not fair if you leave out the rest of it. lol

    Yes, Its a lesbians harley.

    My old man had a crash on it, and figured I'd buy it as a cheap fuel option as I was working at Darra from Stafford (45mins). Now it just lives under house, I ride it maybe twice a week. Most times needing clutch starting. lol

    Anyway, up your's!!! :p
