    Another very Monet-esque shot. Nice scene, but watch that histogram and exposure.
    D7000, D70, CP990, CP900, FE.
    50mm f/1.8, Sigma 18-125, Sigma 24-70 f/2.8, Nikon 18-105 VR, Nikon 55-200 VR, Nikon 43-86 f/3.5 AiS, Vivitar 28-90 F/2.8-3.5 Macro, Vivitar 75-205 F/3.8-4.8, SB800.
    Ha! See, I can change...

    Thanks...I am still new to this and I was playing with the manual settings when I took the shot...what am I watching for in the histogram and in the exposure? So I can learn from my mistakes.

    Try to keep the primary exposure from the extreme right hand side of the histogram, and unclipped accross the board. I'm not sure which camera you are using, but most dSLR's and some all-in-ones have a setting which will show the overexposure by flashing/blinking on the overexposed areas. You can compare this to the histogram to get an idea of how to guage exposure.

    Once you get the hang of it, overexposures will be rare, or on-purpose. Better to underexpose by -1EV than to overexpose +1EV. You can recover information in the former, but not in the latter.

    Again the OE wasn't real bad, but just something to be aware of in the future.

    No thanks for pointing it out to me...I was using a Canon Powershot S2IS...it has the histogram...and blinks but I wasn't sure what it was trying to tell me....but in order for me to see it I have to go into a menu and bring it up. I was just happy that when I used the manual buttons I was able to get a picture rather than a blank screen. so now I know that the -1EV is better I was trying to am for a 0 I thought that would mean that your scale was balanced...I am a hands on learning I read a book and it wasn't to clear and you can forget manuals...at work we got this new "improved" program a few years ago to help make my job easier and I was sitting there w/ the manual do everything it said to do and you know what it didn't work it was about 5% clear....so I find hands on approach much better with feedback! So thank you very much!

    Here are two pictures of a bridge across the highway built especially for pedestrians and cyclers. Given its location (on the edge of the city) and the fact that there's a perfectly acceptable bridge just a few hundred meters away make it a total waste of money in my opinion. It is a nice place to take pictures of, though . Both were taken with the Sigma 10-20.



    Nikon D-50
    // Nikkor 70-300 f/4-5.6 VR // Nikkor 50 mm f/1.8
    // Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4.5 ...// Nikon SB-600
    // Sigma 10-20 f/4-5.6......// Nikon Series E 135 mm f/2.8
    // Kiron 105 f/2.8 Macro....// Manfrotto 190XPROB + 488RC4
    // Nikkor 35 f/1.8..........// Sigma 500 mm f/8
