It's Been a Long Time

Unread postby jbtaylor » Sat Sep 19, 2020 3:46 am

since I rock and rolled.
Traveled to the east coast of Virginia. Yes, for golf. But I got a chance to visit the small town of Cape Charles.
Bad weather. Bad light. Limited software capabilities.
Excuses over.

My travel footprint is much smaller than yours.
Thanks for commenting.

The last travel I did was a few weeks here in Japan in January just before the coronavirus pandemic.

I decided to create a photo thread of one of the places we went to finally after 50 years to see the Jigokudani Snow Monkeys:

JT,
I found bracketing to come to rescue on a bad light day, more than once. But Nature is what it is.
You have to work with it. I liked the second one. I think first one would have benefited from a bracketed shot
or even built-in HDR feature of the camera.

Henry, looking forward to the thread.

Yes, the second one is my favorite too!

No excuses. Had not shot with the RX1 in a while. Bracketing never occurred to me and am not sure that it would work if handheld. One thing for sure, the free version of Capture 1 for Sony is lacking in essential tools that are and were provided in Lightroom. Time to make an upgrade. I feel like the composition was correct but the technical side (as usual) is where I fall short. As I said, no excuses. :D
Still, it was good to get out with a camera in my hands. Been too long, or should I say "Been a Long Time...".
