    Thanks! I'm glad that you like it that much!
    Yeah, the drag strip was about the same for me. My day time shots were just a few miles from the house.

    Of course my mystery photos will be way farther away, but I'm not having to travel with it! ;)

    Just for fun, I used the effects tools in Photobucket on one of my final shots...

    Thanks CeeBee.
    Hopefully I'll get my final pics before the deadline. The bike is still in route to the super secret location! :android:

    Nice job! Photoshop is an unbelievably powerful program, ive been using Adobe Lightroom for years and its way easier and much better for straight photography. I would highly recommend you download the trial and give it a shot, the "clarity" slider will blow your mind:thumbsup:
    Also I'll give it one more shot... the super secret pic will be shot mid flight in the airplane?

    ooooh, I wish I had thought of that!
    Cool! You've got the real deal! :cool2:
    Thankfully it cleared the Bermuda Triangle without any problems.:D
    That picture was done inside Photobucket in the edit tools. I've got Photoshop at work, but I cut my teeth in CorelDraw and I end up using it almost all of the time for graphics and I use Corel Photo-Paint for images.

    Btw, you have been reading my mail on practically every step I've made on this bike, so it's no surprise that you would guess where the secret location is! Out of your three guesses, one of them is right! I'm just waiting for the pix now.:happy:

    Well, it took pulling some strings and calling on some favors from my fly buddies at NASA, But after a hurried up flight, Drag King arrived at the very special photo location for a once in a lifetime backdrop for my final picture. The guys were only able to get one photo sent before the camera battery died, but one picture is really all that I needed. This was a huge effort that involved too many people to list, but I just want to thank everyone at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and everyone at the Control Center in Houston for their tireless work making this happen! May you have a safe return to Earth later next week. :41:


    So, with only hours to spare, here is Drag King making one small pedal for RatRodBikes, and one giant leap for Ratkind.

    Suitable backdrop, although I thought there would be more stars in the background?:41:
