get rid of the extraneous stuff in the background and foreground of the pics (thru composition or with P shop) like the feet and helmet and such, try a setting one stop cooler than you are using on the aperture, and pay a tiny bit more attention to critical focus, and on the close ups use auto focus. Id' also use fill flash in those over bright situations as it'll add to the definition of the object. Steal composition from websites that professionally shoot cars too. This helps a hobbyist get better quick.

I'm hoping to have my MS3 RMM and custom exhaust in for the run, but we will see. Kinda waiting on the exhaust shop.

I might go. I don't want to drive to Santa Fe, but if you guys are hanging out a little bit before you go I might stop by.

Unfortunately no mods this time around for me. Replacement bolt still hasn't arrived for the RMM and the Exhaust Shop is still waiting on parts. Maybe next week everything can be installed.

TerSoth... If it's anything like last time we'll be hanging around at Lowe's for a bit waiting.
