What is 505050?

The idea is to use a 50mm lens to take one shot a day for 50 consecutive days. The images posted will be unmodified ... well, I'll convert them from RAW into JPEG, but that's all. Some images may benefit for a bit of a twiddle and they will appear either on my flickr pages or my blog. Have fun looking over my attempts and please make comments and offer encouragement to complete the 50 day project.

Shot #36

Easter Monday and another day off work.  We decided to take a walk up and around Totara Park and then through Auckland's Botanic Gardens.  Today's shot is looking across one of the lakes in the botanic gardens.  The cheat, of there is one, is that a polarizing filter has been used to give a bit more detail to the clouds and perhaps a little more saturation to the greens.

Using the filter cuts out quite a bit of light as you may appreciate from the camera settings below.  It was quite a bright day, yet at f4 the shutter speed was only 1/100.  The sun, incidentally, was over to my right.

Hand held, 50mm lens, f4, 1/100second, ISO 200
