So my friends picked me up at 6:15 a.m. this morning and we went to the waterfront to view the sunrise...or more to point the pretty colors and clouds since we couldn't actually see the sun. It was cold, but fun, and most of my prompts were found on the shoot.
Mainly One Color:
My favorite shot from the shoot...I sharpened and ran noise reduction, but the whites were exactly like this and the bird was just that close.
Around the Home:
Now that I have a speed light, I can take pictures of the boys, too, since they are only around the home as it starts getting dark. Still getting the hang of it, but I love having it.
I tried some HDR, but the clouds moved too fast for my setting changes (no auto-bracketing on the d3100; yes, I'm sure), plus I don't understand the program...I kind of liked the small thumbnails, right and left, but when I asked for full size the middle is what I received. I'll play some more with it for fun, but I'm pretty content with just a regular picture.
Most of my pictures are of the water, so I had trouble deciding, so you get two shots.
The above shot taken with a wider angle. Such a beautiful location and fun, fantastic photographers with which to spend the morning.
You'd think with writing like this staring me in the face I would pay close attention to my horizon lines, but I still had to straighten and crop some of my photos (though less than usual, so I am learning.)
I hope you had happy hunting. I certainly did! Have a fantastic Sunday!
