In pic 3 Jay, somehow "enhances" some of his pics. Not sure how he does it but they really come alive. In pic 1, I think Jeff was fighting the sun a bit. The true color of PREDATOR is somewhere between the two pics.

You call it "enhancing", I call it "post-production".

Some factors that can affect a photo like this:
position of the sun relative to the boat and presence/absence of clouds
camera characteristics/settings, especially white balance and saturation
use of a polarizing filter

I like vivid color in my pictures. Nikon has won worldwide acclaim with it's latest generation of color sensors that were introduced with the D3 and D300. I've been amazed at it's color capabilities and what it does with in-camera processing. As I become more familiar with how to utilize it's power, I find that I am spending much less time with photoshop to get the look I want. The pix from the FMO Turkey Run had no color or saturation adjustments done before publishing.

hijack over- back to the diesels!

Default Here's the Monza

24' Monza, 7.3L (PC) Navistar diesel, roughly 320 Hp continuious. This was a turbo charged 7.3 long before they had ever made them for trucks. 1:1 gear anywhere from 62-67 mph depending on prop and conditions.

The boat started life with a 6.9L NA Navistar diesel that spun about 4,700 RPMs and made about 265 Hp, 1.33 gear

Funny thing the additional Hp made almost no difference in speed. This as I repeat many times was when we still believed you needed a BIG prop and that would compenstate for lack of RPMs.

I'll post more later, off to exercise for now, got to stay the course!!!!
