Shooting conditions on Monday morning, July 26, 2010, were almost perfect. Great sky, colors, amd a mist rising from the humidity in the air. My intention was to shoot HDR on a farm across the street from the Bielenberg Sports Center in Woodbury, MN, but I could not help but take some pictures of the sunrise and the resulting rising mist on the soccer fields.
I liked the way everything seemed to be moving away from the sun, including the fence and field lights! The clouds looked to be air brushed into the sky - they were absolutely beautiful!
Shot with an aperture of f7, 1/400 shutter, and an ISO of 100. Edited initially in Adobe Camera RAW, then finished in Photoshop Elements.
