Early days in Glen Affric
Lens: Pentax DA 18-55 SMC Camera: Pentax K-30 Photo Location: Glen Affric, Scotland 
Posted By: clockworkrat, 05-14-2015, 03:50 AM

Looking down towards Loch Affric and the head of the glen.


Sundew


Two issues I'm so far aware of are a) Poor depth of field, and b) Underexposure at time of shutter. I should have stopped down the aperture a bit, and let the shutter take quite a bit longer. I'm still trying to work out the optimal EV range with the in-camera meter, and went a bit too aggressively towards the best centre sharpness at the expense of having a shallow DoF.

No problem. I love this country and I love taking photos of it. Plenty more to come.

Cheers. That's as much a testament to my editing process as anything else. Here's what it looked like straight out of the camera:

Processing is as much a part of the creative process as taking the photo. It's beautifully captured and edited!
