Taken a few days ago (although it's snowing again now). Interesting opposing slopes and the way the early morning sun is catching the higher trees is fun - in reality there was more of a golden glow to them.
I'd agree with that, Martin. If I had followed the advice of many, and adjusted exposure by lowering ISO one stop per decade of film age, I should probably have set my ISO to 50 or 100. Because I adjusted the ISO upwards, instead of down, that would mean I was 4 or 5 stops out of whack. It was shot on a completely manual camera, with no exposure compensation applied. Now, to my eye, there's nothing wrong with the exposure here, and that level of grain is something I can live with for street photography. A bit of grittiness suits the subject matter, I think. My choice of pushing it to 1600 allowed me to shoot this at arm's length right under the guy's nose at a narrow aperture, and so knowing that the shot would be in focus, due to the available depth of field (no auto focus here!)
