Great delic 2007-08-21 0:13

Hi Kathy,
This is quite impressive. I amazed at the detail and tonal range. Even the sky has kept some its blueness. Composition is very good showing us the age and might of this redwood tree. Camera settings are usefel. I'm curious as to why you underexposed by 1.3 stops. Best wishes,

Default To delic: 1.3 stop

Hi Hakan--I used this setting to achieve these results quickly. I sometimes defer to that capability on my camera. Here, I found that a quick check at my LCD and histogram, showed some loss of tonal range, as you described. I was on a nature walk with a friend and conversation moved toward where we were going for dinner when I went under the tree branches (that surrounded this tree and reached to the ground)and saw this dramatic lighting. It was quite different from the landscape shots I was taking. I know I could have changed the aperture/speed to get these results, but I "cheated" so to speak by using the +/- exposure adjustment instead. So, I guess the honest answer is, hungry and didn't want to loose the shot. Thanks for asking and do you use this option too?
