A formal welcome Ryan! Nice opening volley!

That's very cool Zim! Your lighting treatment is perfectly subtle.

The COTA Media approval is a much needed first step. I think someone alluded to the fact that each racing organization handles it's own credentialing. That might prove to be more challenging, but we'll see. Not the end of the world either way. I'm going to get a feel for the ropes when I go down for my meeting with COTA. Credentials would always be good, but I just want to make sure no one has any problem with big glass.

Today is a Photoshop day as I seemed to have been gifted with some kind of virus that just absolutely knocked me flat yesterday afternoon. I don't know that I've ever been so instantly weak and achey. Came home, got in bed, unheard of for me, and slept from 2 to 7 this morning.

Thanks Gero. I think I am, I'm awake! I had a couple of aerials to fly today, but that's not going to happen.

Anyone ever shot in White Sands? I just got an assignment for soem more oil & gas work out in far West Texas. Thought I might make a side trip to White Sands if it's worth it.

I have Jim, and I'd say it is definitely worthwhile, especially for someone with your talent. Go just before sunset and watch the pink glow that rises after the sun has dropped below the horizon as the white sand reflects the sky, it's amazing.

Just got back from a week in Cuba, lots of catching up to do.

Thanks Gero. One of my favorite images of all time. I'm trying to decide what paper surface to print it on.

If not to late, my choices on B&W media are:

- Hahnehmuhle Fine Art Pearl - Incredible color depth and texture.
- Ilford Gold Fiber Silk - Also great color depth, but it's smooth finish would probably suit this image better
- Moab Slick Rock Metallic to change it up a bit
- and finally, print it on a sheet of aluminum ;-)



and a stereotypical cuban shot. Old Cuban smoking a cuban, worked over for a gritty feel:

Thanks Jay! That White Sands Gallery is enough to get me to make the trip. Beautiful!! I need to see how far it is from where I'm shooting.

Here's something that I found interesting and irrefutable........... What ticks me off though, is when I see an Illinois, Michigan, PA, Ohio, CA license plate in Texas looking for work. If you vote this stuff in in your state, Ya ought to have to live under it.

Also make sure they aren't running tests the day you go there, the only road between Las Cruces and Alamogordo gets shut down if they are flying something. Las Cruces to Alamogordo is 66 miles. Hope whatever that bug is decided to pack up and git!

Jo, Enjoy Sky Fall tomorrow, it's a gripper!


Just back from seeing it, and it was awesome! Thoroughly recommended. Hope you are feeling better soon Jim.

All these Arizona shots make me want to pack up the Orange Wagon and head west... too cool.

Thanks Guys and Gals! I just went out with Sheila to get a Coke and stretch my legs, now I'm back horizontal. Man, makes you appreciate good health. Hope I'm up to my aerials in the am, if not, they'll have to wait. Like Ernest & Julio, I will shoot no aerials before their time
