groceries in transit

    For the pool -

    Taking the shot (Canon Powershot S2 IS):
    - Took about 6 shots in a row, trying to hold the camera still enough to get a decent image
    - In total the shot took about 1 minute to setup, shoot and walk away.
    - Wide angle lense (0.75x).
    - Av mode - increased the aperature to get a longer depth of field, which resulted in a slow shutter speed, so I rested the camera on my foot.

    Modifying the shot (iPhoto):
    - Increased the contrast just a bit (+3ish). Wanted more contrast.. :)
    - Increaseed saturation just a bit (+3ish). Colors weren't right - adjusted until it felt like it did when I was there.

    General Comments:
    - Yes, tropicana was on sale.
    - Yes, Fiesta Farms is the best grocery store around (and extremely close).
