    Battling with the wind.

    Hard to see that it was blowing a hooey 85mph, trying to keep the DP2 steady and stay upright, fortunately and unfortunately the tide was ebbing as high tide had been around 7am, so not as dramatic shots as wished.
    Apologise for the dullness of pics. If anyone wishes to enhance them please go ahead, have tried my best with SPP & elements 6.

    Derek.

    On the contrary, I think those shots are dramatic, especially the first three. I'm on the verge of losing myself and buying a DP2

    Derek, the kiddies running against the wind is a lovely picture.

    hi derek, this is tempting the devil! however, that's what art directors are for. love the girls. here's three samples with nik efex color pro 3 (it will work in elements). keep at it. good work. (of course you can do better work than this starting with the raw file.)

    wayne.
    What can i say they are just terrific, i will just have to try harder.
    all my shots with the DP2 here are jpgs taken from raw originals,tweaked in Spp and auto colour in aliments. that just makes my effort worse.

    Back to the drawing board.

    Derek,

    I thought the photos were all great and they were even better when others did a bit of PP. Keep up the good work.
