Favorite Color? 18% Grey.
A Fourth in DC
OK, so this 4th of July we went downtown to see Team America play.
3. Just above the center of the frame are the Nats TV announcers. Not bad, considering I was in the upper deck on almost the opposite side of the stadium.
4. Danny Espinosa fouling one off. He was hit later in the at-bat.
Now for some fireworks. Here's a test HDR shot from around... 8:30? I PS'd out two of the watermarks, but I didn't even try the third :). I think I may buy Photomatix Light. In our town (a DC suburb) we have our Fw's at the Little League park. It's a great place to be and raises money for the league. I used to play on that field... seems like yesterday
Here's a shot from before the Fw's started... my EXIF says this is around 9:45. 30 sec., f/11, ISO 400. You should have seen how many hot pixels were originally in this shot... thankfully, ACR automatically takes them out.
I was getting tired of going every year and getting the same shots every time. Expose for a few seconds, get some nice shots... if I want those shots, I already have them! I did get some of those, but I also decided to try something different. When you go to a fireworks show, what is it like? The booming fireworks, light, and smoke combine to make a crisp, almost transparent feeling. Here, I'm trying to capture what it's like to be there. Do any of the following three do that? Each are 1/20th sec.
And finally, some of your long-exposure Fw shots. Yeah, I know, the trees were in my way in some of them.
