    Just a little something I worked on yesterday. This shot was taken at 9am. It is FAR from perfect but I think with practice, this could be a cool shot.

    9am or 9pm?

    Exif:
    # Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) = 1/1250 second ===> 0.0008 second
    # Lens F-Number / F-Stop = 35/10 ===> ƒ/3.5
    # Exposure Program = aperture priority (3)
    # ISO Speed Ratings = 200
    # Original Date/Time = 2010:08:26 21:04:09
    # Digitization Date/Time = 2010:08:26 21:04:09
    # Shutter Speed Value (APEX) = 10287712/1000000
    Shutter Speed (Exposure Time) = 1/1250 second

    Lol, yes 9am. All the flares from the stadium lights are photoshopped. They weren't even turned on. But I am glad everyone likes it. And yes Keith, I remember you sayin that and I am still practicing that. I plan to go back at night or dusk and try it again for real sometime. I am glad you guys like it though. :) lol

    That's pretty amazing photoshop work when you even remember to put in the internal lens reflections from the (non-lit) stadium lights!

    I'm not going to try and act like I did something I didn't. Photoshot automatically puts in the internal flares when you render a lens flare.
