How did you make that image? #54

Play Misty for Me

Pinnacles Overlook, Shenandoah NP

Technical – Nikon D300, Tokina 50-135 2.8 @ 75mm, 1/30 sec, f/2.8, EV=0, ISO200, WB=Cloudy, multi-segment metering, aperture priority, RAW capture, tripod

Since Depth of Field wasn’t much of an issue here, I focused on the near ridge and tried f2.8 (wide open) just as an experiment. Still lots of detail as the post-process demonstrates.


Lacks the foreground element that I usually try to include. Nothing nearby to use. Go for the postcard variety instead. 😉

Two triangles.
