~ clouds at play ~ . { eXplored }

    A good half dozen snaps were washed out from the strong sunlight, overexposure .. lol
    Don’t know why shutter speed did not go down to 1/3200, but stayed at 1/2000 at aperture priority
    It did not strike me then, but later on … maybe I should have gone to manual mode
    What I did was get the aperture narrow. , straight from f/3.1 to f/8
    Another learning experience this for me, maybe I am better prepared for next time

    A word of caution: I am not sure if shooting the sun even through such a cloud cover is safe
    My eyes sure hurt
    This snap I took half blinded
    Got over with it in 5 minutes or less I guess, , but I would appreciate feedback never the less

    eXplored #210, 12th September 2012 . . . Thank You every one !!
    went up to #62 , (my previous best was #135, for another snap) ..

      Wonderful light and stunning clouds formation ... lovely sky!
      The only thing I know is that it should not be so good for the lens to shot directly
      against the sun ... and for the eyes either ;-))
      Have a grat weekend ahead Sean!

      Many thanks

      Many thanks for the feedback
      Eyes, yes ... agree fully
      Lens part I am not sure, the camera sensor sounds more likely

      Many thanks :-))

      Hi Sean!!! I wear sunglasses only when shooting into the sun... Blinding, yes!!! Sunglasses and squinty eyes do help though. So we both get the same clouds and sun flares... Love it! Hope you are well... Our man always makes me think of you! He won 3rd place in a contest in the NICE group...
