Camera Nikon D700 with 24-120mm Lense.
ISO 200, 1/250sec, f/10, at 50mm.
After many attempts to get the exposure right in this seascape with white cliffs, shooting in Apperture Priority and even using exposure compensation, the results were good but I still wasn’t happy. I finally resolved that the best way to get more detail in the cliffs was to go into manual. I discovered the optimum speed by pressing the shutter half-way, then switched to manual and dialed in the that speed, set the apperture and left it in auto-whitbalance. When I got home I couldn’t believe the lovely detailed shot, correctly exposed as well. Awesome! I’ll be taking my time more often and switching to manual. Takes time but I think it’s well worth the effort to take control of the camera now and again.
