BROOK IN THE PARK

I took this image back in July at the local park. I just got around to looking at it today. Taken with the D7000 with the 18-135mm lens set at 48mm. Hand held ISO 200 f5 @ 1/125th ss.

Exposure-wise this is from the camera's file. I can see that the sensor (made by Toshiba) is holding down the highlights on the rocks lower right and the tree stump back at center left. By setting the camera to manual mode I was able to use the on-board metering system to keep things from clipping on either end. If I had used the P mode the camera would have been quite confused with the extreme hot spots.

BTW - having the ADC (analog to digital converter is also made by Toshiba) and the sensor designed by the same manufacturer, the processing is amazingly accurate even for a web jpeg. The amount of detail here is high so I'm quite pleased with the performance of this chip.

Thanks for stopping by.
