I was waiting this afternoon for a storm to pass by but it never made it. It has been a little dry on this part of town for this time of summer. The light was flat and it was cloudy. This type of subject has a high reflectivity so I shot using matrix metering but under careful observation of the histogram. I had to add 0.7 exposure compensation to capture the highlights. The camera used was my ancient D1X in aperture priority set to f11. The lens used was the 70-300 VR AF Nikkor at close to 200mm. Obviously, VR off. I used manual focus. The camera and lens were on my Gitzo tripod with Linhof ballhead and electronic cable release. Mirror locked up. I had to increase contrast and brightness just a bit while carefully watching the histogram. There was a mild red cast that I controlled using cyan and yellow to my taste. Nothing spectacular but I want to share it with all of you. William Rodriguez Miami, Florida.
