A very different sort of congestion today. These guys kind of go wherever they want to go, and they weren't too keen to get out of the way.

Apparently if you hit one in your car by day, it's your fault. If you hit one at night it's the owner's fault for not securing his herd. Either way, it'll be pretty messy as there's a lot of weight coming directly towards you at windshield height!

A good way to reduce the green house effect, #6 is the best for me. Would some -EV help with the background.


Cheers

If they are free to go anywhere, why are they hoppled at the front legs, do the owners just let them walk around during the day?

Apparently there is over 600 000 camels in Australia. I have come across them in Central Australia and once saw the damage a Camel did when hit by a big road train. Camel meat is also good eating :P

Thanks 4xxxx. I wanted to keep the processing as natural as possible. That's how stark the light is in the middle of the day.

I've just moved up to CS5 though, so need a bit of masking practice so will give it a try.

@ maxjj

They can go anywhere during the daytime as they're let out. The areas around motorways are fenced off though. In this area there is virtually always a group wandering around near the roadside so I went prepared. The tethering is to stop them running off so they just shuffle along, which makes you want to untie them.

I really want to get to the local camel racing this year and the season starts in the wintertime.

That's pretty good, i seen hobbled saddle horses that could take lead of a bunch once they figured out how to run like a jackrabbit
