I was out yesterday exploring for a photo, you know this photo of the day thing puts the pressure on one!
So I went to Lake Accotink park, http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/lake-accotink/
Not much going on just a couple of runners a cyclist or two. The sky was looking rather good so I wanted to get a shot using the sky for the main bulk of the photograph, but needing something for the photo to anchor on. Then I see the canoes, initially I wanted to get a shot from the other side, but they had a horrid looking chain connecting all the boats together. From this direction I am looking into the sun a wee bit, it is high off out of view, camera left. The trouble with that is that it cast a shadow over this side, and that darkened them enough to make them just a black mass' to compensate, I opened them up with a fill flash coming in from above the camera. All post production is done via Lightroom, please feel free to leave your critiques. And pass this on to your friends.
The stats for this are:
250th sec, f10, ISO 100 with a focal length of 15mm on a 24-105 lens mounted on the Canon 5d mk3
