    Nah, 1/640th - I left the EXIF data intact if you want to see (these are all just straight resizes from the camera). I was mostly trying to see how far I could push the dynamic range without getting blown highlights all over the place.

    This one I might put through a contrast and color adjustment, just to see what pops out.

    And... one more. I'm going to have to remember to stop down that lens in the future...

    Now that's a great capture!

    At first as I was scrolling down and saw how far I still had to go I was already thinking "he should have cropped off the feet, they won't add anything to the portrait." So I reached the bottom with low expectations, and nearly fell over laughing.

    A chance to do a little more shooting came today, so I got out and did so. The sky isn't blown out in this picture, that's really what it looked like... kind of what you get for living where I do.

    Who said the sky is blue?

    Still, good shot. I'd crop the bottom a little... and maybe try f 11ish, the trees are a little out of focus.

    Cheers, Don

    Yeah, grey and drizzly are the order of the day 'round these parts, so I bumped in-camera contrast and saturation.
    Unfortunately, there was so little ambient light that bumping to f/11, even with ISO400 pushed the shutter speed to 1/8th-ish of a second. IS is nice, but I have arthritis in my hands - I wouldn't be able to get a clear picture.

    Thanks for the C+C, I'll try working on a crop, see if I can find one to my liking and re-post. Perhaps a trip through a light unsharp mask might help a little as well

    Didn't your mother tell you to always use a tripod?

    Not my mother, she wouldn't know which end of the camera to point forward.
    I made the mistake of bringing a monopod on this shoot instead.
