PAW 30


“Turn around, look behind you.”  I’m always (well, attempting to) telling myself to look around and not to get locked into the scene or setting that I imagined would make the best photograph.  That was certainly the case for this photo.  I imagine a scene of a pier in the early morning fog but that scene simply did not “work”.  As I retraced my steps, the scene directly opposite from the one I had in one was by far the best shot and is this week’s featured photograph

Once again I was using the G12 – it is so convenient and easy to use.  This time, anticipating slow shutter speeds, the G12 was mounted on a tripod.  Exposure was 1/60 second at f5.6 as set by Av mode for ISO 80.  Processed from RAW in ACR, the histogram is shifted towards the right because there are few dark areas.  I did not attempt to salvage the dark and bright details because those details simply were not there in the actual scene.  Likewise, the colors are muted and unsaturated.

A different sort of picture for me but one that I like.
