OOPS a Spill

Uploaded: December 05, 2008


Taken in a parking lot today after it was raining, not anything to tricky, I shot wih natural daylight and “slightly” enhanced the hue of an already beautifully colored pieced of asphalt. It was overcast when I created it.
I created the image with a canon 40d.
When I brought the image up on the screen I was really amazed at how much it looks like a tour of one of the local underground caves with a reflection in the water where the boats go and that they illuminate with different colors.

Exif: F Number: 16, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/20 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 400, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 80.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 40D

Thanks it's amazing what a not so natural occurence a not "so happy accident" for the parking lot owner, could make such a pretty rainbow as my daughter called it. #6858460
