Thanks for the reply, love how you framed this shot, and the photorealistic feel of your HDR pic is great ! Gotta get my hands on Lightroom and photoshop, but I don't have the bucks... :roll:

Pasco Gooses lined up outside the museum in Port Hardy. I mean hangar. Hangar! The airplanes are lined up outside the hangar. My goodness, how embarrassing.

Rowdy

Your last shots are stunning.

You are becoming a heck of a photographer, please keep them coming!

RB
X 2! Rowdy, great work!

I haven't been on this thread for a while & am really impressed with all the images! I wish I had some a/c images to contribute, but I'm truly enjoying your posts!

Let's see if I can find one or two images that I've taken lately.

beaverlover, you can do most everything with Photoshop Elements ... that program can do more than most of us can, and it's about $80. Well worth the investment.

Is that not a 210/5 or 205?

I thought so too but the registration says it's a 1967 C206. I guess that answers the trivia question about when the bump dissappeared! Not so rare after all but still an unusual appearing 206.
