Tonight’s photo is the night version of this post. Because it was so dark, it didn’t turn out quite as bright as I had hoped, even though I shot at ISO 200 for 10 minutes. I’ll try this under a full, or near full, moon to see how different it might be.
A credit to the capabilities designed into our eyes is that I could clearly see the tops of the rails just from the incident light from the stars and lights across the river, but it took 10 min for my camera to pick them up! I’m still learning the limitations of my camera, compared to my eye. It is very evident when looking and shooting a hight contrast scene; my eyes can pick out color/detail in the shadows and bright areas simultaneously. My camera does not have that dynamic of a range. I may have to try HDR photography at some point to see how close I can get what I see to the screen.
