I was gonna say......
Agreed, keep the bird, lose the people, and a quick straightening = great image. How did you do it with such an old camera?
Hey watch who yer callin' old! It was 9 yrs ago, the 400D wasn't that old then. Even then tho', not only could it do lots more than a film camera, I felt the early Rebel range was highly underated by all the pundits. The lens in mine, if you believed the reports, was hardly able to take a picture, let alone a decent one. In answer to your question tho' I still think in old skool, and in these I would have exposed for the sky. On the other hand The most regular stunning sunsets I have seen came in this region, taken from Foxton Beach and both the Canon and my Fuji S9500 managed good rich sunset pictures. It took somewhat longer on the Fuji than the Canon but.
Last night was a waste of time, I haven’t even bothered to transfer images to my computer.
We all have times like that, but here I am years later producing creditable images from stuff I thought back then, was perhaps a waste of time, but kept any way. Oh yes I meant to say, my ability with software has improved some over the time as well.
