Rode around downtown Wilmington, NC (where I live) and took some shots. No C&C required b/c theres too many pictures... feel free to though if you're bored, but I'm not expecting it. I do have the question on one though. Some of these aren't technically good but it was good practice. Question: I was having a problem shooting the first photo shown. The sun was coming down behind it making the sky fairly bright and contrasty due to the clouds. The woods where this creek and bridge were coming over were very dark and shaded due to the trees. I couldn't for the life of me get a decent exposure where the sky wasn't blown out... or the woods and bridge turned into a huge blob of black... This is the best I got. 1.What am I missing? ISO needed bumped up more or what? ISO200, 1/125, f4.5 2. 3. 4. power lines killed this.... 5. 6. 7. 8.
