Pregame Warmups

Taken at last night’s Rockies versus Dodgers game at Coors Field. The grounds crew had just cleared the tarp off the field and the player finally had time for warmups on this cold 8th day of May. We’re supposed to have up to 10 inches of snow overnight tonight!

Late Summer Coors Field

Two Fridays ago, it was DigitalGlobe night at Coors Field where the Rockies took on the SF Giants. Though our free seats were in the Center Field stands (aka, the Rock Pile) the views were spectacular.

Good Efforts Gone Awry

As you probably can tell by now, I bring my camera with me to almost every Rockies game these days. I love being able to capture some special moments or just capturing the grandeur of Coors Field. I love this stadium and I love baseball.

For some reason this one game, my camera was set to something along the lines of +2.5EV, meaning that every shot was captured at 2.5 stops brighter than what the good exposure was. Yikes! And I didn’t realize this until about 30 frames into the game.

Back home at the Digital Darkroom, I’m uploading the images from the previous day’s events and remembered these 30 way-overexposed images and thought, “What can I do to salvage something from these shots?”

Solution — High-contrast black and white!

Here’s the results from a 12-shot panoramic attempt, all shot at +2.5EV.
