Fun with Exposure Settings
I had the chance to go up to the Great Smokey National Park in early October for my fall break with my parents and my fiancee. We had a wonderful time being leaf watchers and I am sure some of those picts will make their way here (I am just not getting around to editing them!). These two shots are essentially identical, take of the same subject just a few seconds apart. This is the Cades Cove primitive Baptist Church, organized June 16, 1827. As we were getting ready to leave I noticed that if you stood in just the right part of the parking lot and hoped that no one ran over you, the sun was right at the top of the bell tower/steeple. I snapped a couple shots playing with exposures and f-stops to come up with these two. I like the contrast between them--I hope you do too!
