I work with digital image editing for a living and I can see you (djomlas) know what you are doing you have a good sense for image composing, however this paint shop pro frame effect you are putting on your images is a mystery to me... it looks sooo corny in my opinion and the pictures would be a lot more sharp and clean if you left them with a 1px frame or perhaps just the raw picture edge.

besides that I really enjoy the many great pictures you do and they will definitely be a inspiration for me that day I come around to taking some pictures myself!

I'm with williamsF1 on this one... DJ, you do very good tweaking -but that border seems out of place.

How about something like this? Simple, understated, and clean.

Caymen vertical vents

I see you have Caymen vertical vents on you 987. Looks sharp. Did you have to buy new brackets (?) as well as the vents? If I may, how much for the vents and the paint?

Hi Pierre.

Thanks. I love the look too, I went through bumperplugs and the prices are on their site. Off the top of my head the vents are like 285 with the exchange of your old vents. and I think the trim kit was around 80 bucks from bumperplugs also? but you do have to buy the new brackets, the vents won't clip into place otherwise. hope that helps....and do it!
