Sunset in Southwest Portland – Autumn 2012




This was shot with the Nikon L810 – f3.3, 1/400 sec, ISO-80, 5mm fl.

On ‘auto’, the camera wasn’t giving me the detail and color in the sky that I was seeing with the naked eye without darkening the foreground too much and making the buildings indistinguishable and completely obscuring the red of the trees in the park, so  I fiddled around a bit.  I set the film speed manually to 80 for greater detail, ‘locked’ the exposure on the lighter sky and then re-framed the image.  Post-exposure, I ‘lightened’ the image a little to bring back detail in the buildings.  I’m pretty pleased with the results.
