Warren- I was just admiring your grand prise winner, and for totally different reasons, I like this one as much. I think it's the offset sun that does it for me. You've inspired me to get back to the coast and shoot some Velvia! Dave #46654

Great mood shot, super color and vertical composition, makes me just want to sail off into the sunset! #145318

America B July 18, 2003

Warren, I agree another great shot! Would you mind sharing with me how you meter a shot like this. I also use the D60...thanks a bunch. America. #145576

Warren Ishii July 19, 2003

Hi America, using a D60 to get this photo the evaluative mode was used and metered off of the bright areas of the sky, but not directly at the sun. Take a shot and check it on your LCD. You can use the "info" button to see the historgram and check for too many overblown sections. Having some is okay, but too many will ruin your photo. Adjust to the desired exposure with your shutter speed or step exposure control dial. #145828

America B July 19, 2003

Thanks so much for sharing, Warren. NOw if I just had a beautiful sunset to try out! ;-) Thanks, America. #146021
