    On an unseasonably warm November day, the one after Thanksgiving, there was no one at the Western Maryland Railway Historical Society in Union Bridge.

    R1200rt

    My "new" 2009 R1200RT, purchased last month with only 2100 miles on the clock. I finally got it "farklized" to suit me (GPS, windshield, seat, lower pegs, GS mirrors, sound system, aux lights, etc). Pic taken today on side of one of our many scenic Texas hill country roads. I sold my 2004 RT to get this later model RT. I loved my old one, but I'm lovin' this one even more.

    It's new, clean and bone stock. It should look different in a year from now!

    Clean ,very low miles and in Helen's favorite BMW color

    Hasn't stopped raining since bringing it home from Lone Star's Open House this past Saturday. Helen wanted to ride it to work today

    Main change will be Jet-Hot coating on the exhaust system in a week or so.Cannot keep up with AZ-J...but would be fun trying!

    I must say, while a nice picture, it is too nice, to the point of looking fake. Looks like the background and foreground of an old Bonanza TV show.

    I've been there too. I'm just saying the picture looks too good...like it was all spray painted an hour before it was taken...like no dust on bike...I don't know, just looks super exposed or something. Nice landscape no doubt.

    Dust doesn't show on a silver bike..

    Any photo taken in bright sunlight tends to look a little washed-out and flat, but it looks like he might have gotten lucky with the clouds and avoided that problem. Notice that the shadow under the bike is not very distinct. Colors are enhanced.

    Having said that, it is also easy to achieve the same effect with photo software such as Irfanview or even what came with the camera, just by increasing contrast and enhancing the colors. I always do that with any photo I intend to post on line. Doesn't make it fake, and it just looks better.

    I guess that's my point. I don't think it does look better. It looks unnatural, akin to what you're suggesting about altering settings to achieve a certain look....something degrees different from natural. Not saying it's wrong to do that....just sayin'.

    In the old 35mm days, you could achieve that effect with a polarizing filter. The shot looks real to me - a nice photo.
