Color against darkness
Lens: Pentax FA 24-90 mm Camera: K20D Photo Location: Pacific Cebu Resort, Philippines ISO: 3200 Shutter Speed: 1/90s Aperture: F3.5

Housekeeping at the pool bar after hours. Shot this as a light rain was falling, just after sunset. Most of the guests had left the pool, so it was quiet and dark. The RAW image appeared under-exposed in the histograms, but the highlights were there. I like the strength of the blue and it's contrast against the darkness. The thatch roof above the young lady is only implied by the fringe of grasses hanging down. The Philippines is loaded with surprise photo opportunities such as this. That's why I always have my Pentax handy.

Very sharp and colorful. Looks like I need to give more thought to shoot RAW. Thanks so much for posting.
