365 Photo Challenge for 2011 – December 31st

 

Today we went for a ride on our quads and I took my camera along (actually the main reason I went was to take some pictures).  One of the times we stopped, I took this photo of a mountain in the distance with the cloud cover.  I didn’t convert it all the way to black & white, but just desaturated it quite a fair bit to help keep the contrast more extreme.  I’m really happy with this one.

I like how this one turned out, it’s what I had in mind when I went out to shoot it.  Using the Canon S2 zoomed all the way in with the widest aperture it can do, I was able to isolate the first bulb from the ones farther away, although the one right behind it is still in focus a bit.  I underexposed it in the camera and a little more so in Lightroom to keep the focus of the picture on the bulb.
