Legend On-Ride

Shooting photos of Legend always presents a problem, since Stark Raven Mad ERTs always seem to start with approaching storm clouds making it dark quite early. I deliberately went ahead and shot one go-round at my usual 1/500 sec. shutter speed, knowing full well I'd have to tweak the photos considerably in post-processing. Working from the original Canon RAW CCD data, I jacked up the levels quite a bit but at least ended up with something usable. The graininess is a by-product of the post-processing. Originals are on the left; tweaked versions are on the right.
