I actually prefer the top one - but I really like what you were trying to do with the bottom one.

Do you have PhotoShop?

How about disabling the in-game lens flare effects (as I think they're the wrong shape - OK in game but not so good for a screenie IMHO) and using the Photoshop lens-flare effect (I can't remember what its called but it's there)

Just an idea...

Nice skin BTW! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I reckon you should have the plane in the position it is not not in the water and with the bright sunlight

that way you can see more of the skin and you wont get blinded looking at it


nuts of a skin too

BTW I prefer the 'pose' of the second one, it's just too bright and those pentagonal lens-flares!

The lower pic is not a suicide attempt. It's
an unusual sub-patrol procedure. He tries to
cut the submerged U-Boot the tower off with the
wingtip. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Fender it was technique they used, when they has a loud donnnggggggggg noise they knew they had found one, the advantage was it instantly put you in a circling pattern around the sub http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
