30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 2

After work today, we headed out to explore the “quiet” side of the island, and wandered down to Bartlett’s Landing.  It was late, and we got there at dusk.  Clouds were settling in over the ocean and the light was fading fast.  This is a working man’s harbor.  There was a lobster boat at the dock with a few dinghy’s tied up in front of it.  I tried a few shots from different angles.   The motion of the water prevented me from getting a really sharp photo – but I still like the “realness” of the picture.

Bartlett's Landing at dusk (1 of 1)

  • I used the Aperature-priority setting and had it set to f/16.  My ISO was set at 100.  The camera determined the shutter speed.  The final shot was recorded at 1 sec. f/16 82mm
  • I used Live View and manual focus – which I set to infinity.  The motion of the water kept the focus from being totally sharp.
  • My camera’s timer was set
  • I also used my Exposure Compensation settings to under- and over-expose each shot.  This photograph is slightly under-exposed at –0.3
  • In Lightroom, I adjusted the following settings very, very slightly:   Highlights and Shadows.  For this photo, I did very little editing.  I did crop the photo to bring the lobster boat into the foreground more prominently.
