Strange exposure problems

Didn't appear so to me.

I flipped it back and forth and it seems to move freely. Still have some odd exposures when I'm firing away for awhile - like when a player is approaching a free kick in soccer.

Thanks for all the replies.



That was the first setting I checked. I did that very thing years ago and it took me the better part of a week to figure it out. I now make sure the camera doesn't remember bracketing settings after it's powered off.



No flash in this case.



Not RAW - jpegs right off the SD card.



It's older - a Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di LD Macro. That's probably the issue. I'll have to check out the aperture lever.

Thanks again, everyone.

Shooting during my daughter's soccer game today and when I looked at the results at home, the exposure seemed to be different even though I was shooting in manual. I'll try to post two consecutive photos, one has good exposure, one is over-exposed, even though the camera settings are identical.

So what's going on?

In the past, I've been able to submit photos to the PEG by clicking [edit photo] and then selecting PEG from the category drop-down menu.

I tried that today but it didn't work - I get this message:



Is this method not valid anymore?

People What were you doing that infamous day?.

We were on an airplane.

My grandfather died on September 10, 2001 in my hometown in SE Wisconsin. We had made arrangements to fly from Salt Lake City to Milwaukee via Phoenix the next day. So my wife, our (then) 4-month old little girl and I arrived at the Salt Lake City airport about 6:30 am for a 7:22 am flight.

We had no idea anything was going on at the time. From the time we arrived at the airport to the time we took off, both towers had been hit. Fifteen minutes after we took off, the Pentagon was hit.

About 20 minutes into the flight the co-pilot informs us over the intercom that two planes had crashed into the WTC and that all planes in the US are to land immediately. We were being diverted to Las Vegas.

After landing, we called family members to let them know our status, then start to figure out what do do: Where will we stay? How will we get to Wisconsin for the funeral? Should we just go home?

My company has a branch in LV, so we start there. We get a ride from a co-worker to the general manager's apartment where we call a friend of mine from grad school who's a professor at UNLV and has 2 little kids. We finally get that arranged and end up staying at their place until we figure out if planes will be flying again soon so we can make the funeral. Grandma is worried about us and her great-granddaughter on a plane and told us not to fly and just find a way to get home. Planes weren't going to be in the air in time anyway, so we start to work on getting home.

It just so happened we knew our neighbor was at a convention in Mesquite, about 90 minutes away from LV. So we call her cell phone, and she knew someone who had rented a minivan to drive back to Salt Lake City. It was perfect for us - plenty of room for all our luggage and baby stuff - including an extra child's car seat we were taking back to my brother.

So on Thursday, the day of the funeral, our friends we've been staying with in Vegas drive us to Mesquite, we meet up with our neighbor and the person with the minivan, and head out for the 5-hour drive back to the Salt Lake area.

Entered this in the Utah State Fair and won a red ribbon in the Commercial and Industrial category:



It's a crop of the backside of a huge container ship on the Savannah river. In the original, there's a sailor looking over the side of the ship:



I entered a corrected (straightened and bumped up exposure) version of this in the county fair and got shut out. So I focused on the containersfor the state fair.

At the airshows I've been to, there have been simulated bombing runs - most likely pre-set pyrotechnics that are triggered from the ground at the appropriate time.
