    DH/FR stoke, lil drop for you from Sat.

    We went back to the Yellow Hills on the WS for round 2 Man weather will killer for the most part all day.

    Only one I got so far, hope you all enjoy. I will load more later as I get them from Larry (or he will post here).




    Thanks again Rich, Larry, Collin, Dan and Arron for a sweet day.

    I think so but just slightly (Larry might post soon about this). It was a clear day however so not sure how much touch up was done. We have vid. of that drop as well but that footage may not be avl. for about a week.

    Color was messed with just a bit. The saturation was turned up just a little and hue was tweaked to compensate for the over reddening of the picture, but we had really good light. The hills are yellow, the picture just makes them look really, really yellow.

    These were taken a little earlier in the morning, when we had a few wispy clouds. Neither of these was retouched.

    I might have tweaked it too much, but I'm not sure.

    One more stolen from C S's face book. This is the "Shot Gun" gap. Great pic. Chris.

    Yes, you maybe just overdid it 5-10% on the color saturation. Matter of taste though...it definitely makes a good impact that way and the contrast between the sky and the yellow stone looks awesome.

    Congrats to all the riders on the huge brass balls.

    What program did you use? I'm using paint.net. I have no experience.

    Beautiful pics on your site.

    Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. I use it for file management, RAW conversion and global editing, then use Photoshop for any local editing.

    The beta of version 3 is available for free download - http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/lightroom3/

    To white balance an image with it, open up the image, click on the develop module, select the white balance eyedropper, then place the dropper on a neutral tone that is well lit (pure white, gray or black) and click. The program will then automatically adjust the white balance for you, and you can always fine tune adjusting the color directly.

    If you use Photoshop you can do even more using RGB color curves, but that takes some time/practice.
