Rain, different lights at the track, One can learn a lot pretty quick

Rising Star

Well, I took my equipment out to the race track and what a learning experiment. Now I know why I drink, haha, just kidding.


Being early evening (some natural light) in to late evening (stadium lights), cloudy, raining, bugs, flickering, under exposure, photo noise haha... One can learn a lot in a few hours.


This was my first time at night racing.


Not the best, but t least I can strive to do lots better.........

You guys can say what you want and brag all you want.  Do as much boasting as you want and DPP will never be Photoshop.

As a psuedo Lightroom, yeah, maybe but not for me. It remains a wanna-be!

No, Ernie, go back and read what's been written on the subject over the past couple of years. (That's as long as I've been in the forum, so it's all I know.) Almost all of the boasting about photo editors has been done by you - about Photoshop and other Adobe editors. Virtually every time somebody asks about photo editors, you recommend, often forcefully, some form of Photoshop.


I will freely concede that Photoshop is probably the finest photo editor ever conceived by the mind of man. All I'm saying is that it's expensive; it's less convenient in at least some respects than DPP; and a significant percentage of the user community will never need it. You may disagree, but I don't like to pay for something I don't need. And I won't knowingly tell other people to buy something that I think they probably don't need.

I appreciate everyone's advice and passion, but I had decided to go with Lightroom.

As I get more experience under my belt I am not opposed to other options.

That is why I recommend it. Smiley Happy Remember B for B, it isn't boasting or bragging if it is true.


I concede the high cost, you got me all over on that part.  And the fact PS is no longer available to buy.  However the rental is only $10 bucks per month and it includes LR.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and less lenses then before!
