New Winglets Installed, Finally (Large Pics) --UPDATED--

Hi all, <br>I got my CFW FRP winglets installed and they look great! No scraping yet! I know exactly which petrol stations and driveways to avoid now. <p><IMG SRC="http://creativevideogroup.smugmug.com/photos/617042721_bucej-X2.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>I also got my FRP spoiler:<p><IMG SRC="http://creativevideogroup.smugmug.com/photos/617043669_GSRYb-X2.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><br>What a big difference the winglets make! I've already gotten several compliments on them from passer-byers. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>--UPDATES--<p><IMG SRC="http://creativevideogroup.smugmug.com/photos/684955904_Am6P4-X2.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>It was a foggy day in La Jolla yesterday, so I decided to take the R and my camera out at 1am to have some fun.<p><IMG SRC="http://creativevideogroup.smugmug.com/photos/684909693_xB5gx-X2.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://creativevideogroup.smugmug.com/photos/684919128_J5XFr-X2-1.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://creativevideogroup.smugmug.com/photos/685020384_rd4fQ-X2.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>- Marty<p><br><i>Modified by SHOlover at 4:40 PM 10-18-2009</i><BR><BR>

Re: New Winglets Installed, Finally (SHOlover)

Looks awesome, and i LOVE the pics. Did you photoshop them after or did you take the original pics with emphasis on blue in the first and less saturation in the second? <p>I only have the 40D but I know what kind of difference a good lens makes. which lens did you have on for these shots?

Thanks!<br>The only photoshopping I really do is RAW processing/conversion. White balance is tough because of the SV lights.<p>The sky is all natural! No real adjustment necessary. Taking the time to do good scouting/shot planning pays off especially with landscapes/skies.<p>I also have a 40D it is a great camera! Shoot RAW...you will love it! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>- Marty<br>

Marty those pictures are amazing and the R looks Great. I just happened to google what type of camera you used and i about fell out of my chair!! Man i didnt even check out the lense i might have a heart attack lol. Impressive camera! What HID kit do you have in the Fogs?<p>Henry another satisfied customer.. the quality of the CF parts are top notch.. I still need to order my winglets!!<p>Evan

This also makes the sky pop. It is always fun and challenging to shoot under crazy lighting conditions!<p>BTW, Henry really worked with me to make sure I was satisfied with his products. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
