Default A Bendn the Path

Shot with the E30 and 70-300 during a walk along Lakeside Drive this morning before I spent the afternoon and evening sunk into the couch watching the football playoff games.

..........glad to know you got outside for a bit, I did the obligatory shopping stops with Bonnie B4 the couch, but HS baseball practice does start tomorrow with games in 2-weeks so I see outdoors on the horizon.

BTW, I like the picture.

I like it too. I've been spinning my wheels here, wanting to go out and shoot but everything is pretty dreary and brown around here. You captured a nice mood.

--nice, moody shot Greg. Was it some morning fog in the air, or just a generally hazy day?

Mainly haze by the time I took this. There was fog earlier, but it had mostly burned off by the time I made it here.

Thanks.

Hi, Greg

Well you got me going to shoot outside in this dreary area. Here's a photo of a hillside at the local Seneca Creek state park. Best I can do around here until summer arrives...

High contrast, Ted! Very good exposure for those conditions, too.

Ted,
..............I'm curious, why did you use the L1 in shutter priority (according to exif data) mode for this?

The exposure is good however I would likely have used AP or manual for this scene, but then I seldom use shutter priority.

It was a very windy day and I just had the camera on shutter priority the whole day because I was worried about image blur.

This scene is an uphill slope looking directly into the sun, the bright spots are the sun reflecting off of wet leaves, and the scene is rather dark. I bracketed the heck out of it, but it turned out that the image I posted is the exposure the L1 chose at the start. (So, Greg, I can't really take credit for that.)

I'm really liking that camera - it has good DR.
