My camera club had its second quarter competition and the winning photos were stunning. To try to improve my technique, I decided to get my manual out today and learn some more about my camera. I figured out a couple of features that I have never used but might come in handy. I plan to make a serious effort to learn more about settings and getting more "right in the camera" instead of relying on processing. There will still be many days with average shots posted, but I also hope to have more higher quality images. This shot was an experiment with settings and lighting.
