Had several errands to run on Saturday, all over Northern part of VT amd NH. Wife drove, so I sat in passenger seat with camera. Came up with this as a game to pass the time. Set all to manual and took shots out the window. No stopping or slowing down. Shot in JPEG. Turned out to be good practice in using camera controls quickly. I usually shoot landscapes and nature scenes that don't require speed, so it was interesting to find how well I have adapted to my camera.

This shot is of The Balsams, a resort hotel in Dixville Notch, NH. Highlights are maybe a little overexposed.

Hi Brian,

Great drive by shot. I'm not sure I could do as well standing still. Anyway, a little post work on this and you'll have a shot to be very proud of. I tweaked it a tad for demonstration.

Best regards,
Rodney Blair

Thanks, Scot and Rodney. I plan on getting back that way a little later this summer, for a more planned shot. Will probably shoot RAW, use a tripod and bracket for better dynamic range. This hotel gets a lot of pictures taken of it.

Great Job Brian, very nice shooting from a moving platform. I can see why this hotel gets lots of pictures taken of it, it very interesting.

Very nice shot. I brought out the blue in the sky more, saturated it a little bit more, and applied auto levels & contrast. Hope you don't mind.
