Photo Of The Week: Season’s End

_dsc3878

The remnants of the summer growing season welcome a late October Sunrise.  The remains of a sweet corn patch are in the left foreground. Ripening soybeans are to the right. The grove of Live Oaks that shelter a civil war era cemetery serve to tone down the intensity of the sunlight preventing a blowout of the scene.  A rather easy shot but it all hinges on the metering.  I used spot metering taking my reading to the right of the sun and locking the exposure.  Manual exposure, f/22 to create the star effect, iso of 400. Raw conversion in Photoshop Elements 14.  Shots like this don’t work so well with no clouds which diffuse the light creating orange, yellow tones in the sky.  No filters. Nikon D 800E. 18-35mm lens.  Thanks for the visit and have a great week.
