Red Leaves, Blue Water – Plus 5-Year Blogiversary

This was harder to create than I thought it should be, and that’s one of the reasons I’m posting it even though It’s not as compelling as I hoped it would be.  My X-T1 kept exposing for the leaves in the foreground which blew out the water and sky in the background.despite my attempts to lock exposure. Eventually I switched to manual exposure to get the result I wanted.  In the end, I wasn’t sure the result was worth the effort (really, it took a long time) but I wasn’t so in love with the scene (Eagle Lake in Acadia National Park) for more traditional basic shots so I’m glad I stayed with this approach.

On another front, I realized over the weekend that the anniversary of my first blog post here was exactly 5 years ago on Saturday. I chose not to do a special Saturday post on Saturday just to mark the event, but I did want to make some mention of it – so Hurray!   I’ve made more than 1400 posts by the way. I’ve no idea how many images that represents, as I have had occasional posts with no images, some with repeats, and others with multiple photos.

    Really like this Mark, I can definitely see the exposure issues, not with your shot but with the scene, and last but not least Happy Blogg-iversary!ReplyCancel
