Legend On-Ride Photos

Shooting photos of Legend was a problem, since Stark Raven Mad ERT began just prior to a huge thunderstorm. These photos were taken in twilight at 1/500 second, barely enough light for photography whatsoever. In post-processing I jacked up the levels considerably, working from the original Canon RAW CCD data, and managed to produce something usable. The graininess and lack of color saturation (one photo is entirely black and white) is a by-product of the post-processing. Originals are on the left; tweaked versions are on the right.
