Star tomato - 272/365

Part of doing a 365 for me was to learn my camera. Today was the first day I used spot metering. The sun was shining on one tomato, while the rest of the plant and the ground was in shadow. Exposing normally would've blown the tomato horribly, but spot metering on the tomato got the exposure I had expected (the ground in the background is somewhat darker than I would've thought, it is actually light to medium gray gravel).

 

The very same plant looked like this in April.
