One more photo from Arizona

Here’s (click here for a larger version) one more from the sunrise shoot. Basically, when the sun comes up and the good light is gone, what’s there left to do? Naturally, you reach for your buddy’s 10.5 Fish Eye lens and start shooting right at the sun. Embrace it… become one with the sun and all of its LCD blinking, overexposed glory. This one was shot with the 10.5 Fish Eye at f/11 at 1/125 sec. Really basic stuff in Lightroom was done (Exposure, Blacks, Clarity, and Vibrance). However, the Recovery slider (pushed to 75) worked like a champ here to bring back some of the blown out detail in the highlights. That’s it for now. I’ll post more as I get ‘em.
