Finding treasure in drabness
The best of autumn is behind us, leaves are just falling from the trees and it's kind of boring for shooting - or is it?
I have the ability to extract every slither and nuance of color even if it doesn't seem obvious. Post-processing can help bring out that little extra sparkle where there seemingly wasn't any. As always, the best light is overcast as it eliminates any shortcomings due to shadows, but light levels can be inadequate unless you use a tripod or activate the VR mechanism on your lens; the latter is handy as it eliminates the need to drag around more gear, Nikon zoom glassware is sharp even at wide apertures.
D60 and 16-85mm VR for the first four files, the 70-300mm VR was needed for the last two.
