Here is the results of what looks to be the best I can manage without going coo coo over pixels. Thanks Narasimhalu, that seemed to get me close, but thinking because everything is hinged it is just making this a lot more complicated than I first thought it would be.

Dear Bill,

My thought sand prayers are with you and your family as well. This life is not for the faint of heart, is it? Sheila and I have lost numerous family members to that wretched and insidious disease.

Looks good!

Just a thought Brian: If you stack your layers in the opposite fashion, each step from down to up would be on top and not behind.

Might look more natural and certainly easier to work on since what you want is on top layer by layer and not hidden behind something.

Just spitballing here...

That dusk shot of Austin Exec reminds me that I've been commissioned to shoot KTKI in the Spring in the same type of light. I'm thinking that I'll charter a 407 and gyro the heck out of the X/D800 for that series.

Do you find the gyro more necessary from helicopters?

Harry, please let me echo the others here in offering my condolences. 57 years is a tremendous accomplishment, one that I hope my wife and I can come close to equaling some day. My family has also lost members to the terrible disease and I am a melanoma survivor. We don't know what God has planned for any of us. You know we mean it when we say the MA2A family is here for you and will do anything we can going forward.
I've enjoyed your photos (and stories), both past and present, and look forward to seeing what you crank out when you start hanging with the AZ boys!

Glenn, Austin Exec looks like a nice field. Do you have to talk to Bergstrom to get in and out of there? Looks like a nice place to be based. This spring I'm going to be doing a week of aerial work in the Eagle Ford Play. I think that might be a nice base for me. Although I suppose New Braunfels would be a little closer.

The ISAP board is converging on Allen tomorrow afternoon for a three day board meeting. I'm headed to a rig in the dark tomorrow morning, but hope to be back in time for a late dinner with everyone. It has become my habit to clean all my sensors once a week at least, and especially prior to an assignment. I haven't been using the super high speed setting on my X bodies and, as a result, the sensors aren't dotted with those silicone amoebas. Must be something Nikon and Canon are using in the mirror mechanism because I have seen lengthy discussions throttling Nikon for exactly the same problem, even in bodies like the D600 that don't have the buffer speed of the X. For people who are hesitant to clean their own sensors, this stuff creates a problem. Back in the early days of digital I was shipping bodies back to CPS on a monthly basis. That gets to be a crazy expenditure of both time and money. I think we talked about this before, cleaning sensors is much more difficult in dry atmospheres. Today is cool, low overcast and misting. Two passes with the Visible Dust 1.0 swabs and my sensors were immaculate. When the humidity is 20% I push dust around for a long time before the sensor is acceptable. My heart goes out to our AZ contingent because 20% is a really humid day for them.

Enough rambling, off to work. Be back with you later!

Hi Glenn,

I wouldn't miss seeing you for the world. We'll have some fun! I'll schedule it for after Lady Jo's return from the UK. Things need to be green so that should be just about right.

Love the Talon, Jim...but did you notice the file corruption along the bottom edge?
