Took this during a conference in San José this week. I'll try to ask a few questions in between if people can suggest what could have been done better. I decided to only bring my GX1 and PL25 btw. They are all PP with Aperture 3. Mostly played with the levels a bit to add contrast. The first four were taken on a boat and therefore needed a bit of horizon adjustment and a little cropping. Really pleased with how sharped they turned out though. ISO 160, f/4, 1/160 ISO 160, f/4, 1/100 ISO 400, f/5, 1/60 Not sure why I closed the aperture, it was clearly darker. It's incredibly sharp though. I have auto-ISO in my camera. This one got played with a lot more. I tried to recover the shadows and think I got a good effect. I think here is where my question comes: If this was taken on land (I'm on a boat rocking heavily so a tripod wouldn't have improved the picture here), would a longer exposure improve the effect? Something like HDR I guess... I think I'm getting the hang of shooting with the live-histogram and overexposed by 1EV get a right-sided distribution. ISO 160, f/5, 1/100 This last one was with very dimm lighting with built-in flash. Maybe I should have taken the hood off and that's why it's darkened on the bottom-right corner. Would you crop it? Thanks for your comments!
