Same pictures... different post

 I have a new photo optimizing program from Ashampoo oddly enough called "Ashampoo Photo Optimizer", I am enjoying tinkering with this program and decided to see if it would bring more life and reality to the photos in my last post.
I think the results speak for themselves but you must remember that I have been in the area depicted and know the colours of the Australian outback have always looked "overdone" to eyes that have not seem them ' in the flesh' so to speak, the red soil and the vivid colour that exist here are probably not repeated anywhere else on earth.
My only disappointment is that the vivid blue of the sky was not reproduced, no doubt it was clouded by the dust created by all those hooves and tyres but also in the strengthening of other  features the blue was weakened.
I will be interested to hear comments from others in the comparison of the photos in these two posts.

Hi Peter ~~ The colors are more vivid and the sky is blue enough in some of them.
The story is still the same and amazing, so deserves 2 posts!!! I doubt if there are any more to come, but nice to see you posting more.
Take care,Love, Merle.

These pictures give new meaning to the word "vast." Enjoy seeing the country I will likely never have the opportunity to visit in person. The color is vivid.

Really like the manner in which the trains wind around. You must have been in a small plane taking those pictures. Would be fun going over in the air. Perhaps hot air balloons, glider planes would be enjoyable, too.

FWIW I just "re-found" my link to your blog and think I best add it to my blogroll less I misplace it again.

Actually...I think these look more like paintings...a bit akin to Albert Namatjira's work.

That's not saying I don't like them!!

Stunning pictures, and the subject matter is fascinating too. Those of us in the U.S. have trouble visualizing the trucking methods you guys utilize and this clearly shows it.

Sorry I'm so late getting here, Peter. My daughter got married last weekend, and I've been busy!
The photos in this post are much brighter and sharper than the one before.

Hi Peter, I've been here several times looking at these. The new rendition is definitely an improvement. Don't stop now. Stay up very late, every night working on the pics and then post the results.
Keep on keepin on.
