Re: 2019 College Football Charters Thread

I'm gonna post this one ahead of schedule; since SEMO is about a 4-hour drive to or from Mizzou, SEMO would most likely be bussed to MU instead of flying this coming Friday.

Re: Pre-screening photos - fsx98

For this edit, I have never used any cloning in this photo; I haven't cropped while editing this photo; is there any way to remove sharp artifacts from the edge of the wing if I haven't used Unsharp Mask to sharpen the photo?
