    The short answer on the difference in the photo's is, I'm a dummy. I forgot to remove the UV filter I had on the lense, that impacts the coloring of photos taken under incandescents and flourescents... Whoops.

    On the Truck, it's Trilogy Motorsports Harley F150 S/C. Supercharged, Mid-length headers, 15" Baer brakes, etc. My personal blog/gallery for the truck is at http://www.trilogyf150.com

    I really loved the event, though not so much lovin' the idea of all the paint real-estate on the truck, even with the DA, whooooooooo boy, it'll be a long polish job...

    First, thank you for playing, Camera Man at the event

    Second, I knew there was a simple answer for the difference. In my position, I never mess with, or modify the photos showing defects and before and after with programs like PhotoShop, (Which I don't own), because the enemy is always waiting at the gate looking for opportunity, so I just don't do it. I would rather post the honest results using the photos I have, (Like I did), and answer any questions after the fact than give the enemy ammo for whatever their nefarious reasons might me.

    Take heart, while it is a big truck with a lot of surface area to tackle, it can be done by one person in a day, you just have to stay focused.

    Here's a forum friend, kromdom, that attended on of our Saturday classes with a similar truck only his was Swirl City, using what he learned at a class just like the one in Dallas, and after purchasing the G100 and the associated products, the next weekend he tackled his truck and then posted the awesome write-up to our forum, I've included the link and a few photos...

    You can still tell the dramatic difference in the before and after shots, even though the color had a bluish tint. You can tell how the swirls disappeared and the bird drop etch mark was no longer visible.

    I thought maybe the camera white balance was set to incandescent or something. The external flash (430 or 580EX) sends white balance information to the camera and some times that can cause the color to vary. If you were using external flash it couldn't compensate for the filter. If you weren't using it, that would be an interesting experiment to see if the flash can compensate for the filter by altering the white balance information.

    The exposure was fine, it was not under or overexposed. That has to be hard to do when photographing a highly reflective subject up close.
