    Fresh off the.. uh, memory card?

    Took this today at mid-day in bright sunlight. Was a bit overexposed so worked it down a notch in Aperture and liked how it was looking, so took it all the way Black & white. I think this is the most true B&W I've done (more black, less gray).

    Looking for feedback on composition or technical critiques with this one :)

    Relevant Info:
    Exposure: 1/1000
    Aperture: 5.6
    Focal: 190mm
    ISO: 200
    Exposure bias: 0ev

    I'd go for the wider aperture and manually focus it so that all of the fountain was in focus. Other than that, actually might be a little dark now. Nice overall, though, I like it.

    Thanks for the feedback :)

    This was actually taken with me laying down on my stomach, looking underneath a railing. I couldn't quite the angle right to manually focus so I relied on Auto using my LCD screen swiveled out for a better viewing angle.

    Say what you want about focusing using the LCD, but that articulating screen is pretty fraking sweet :)
