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.

Another Couple of Experiments From Pawnee Shoot

Here are a couple more sunrise images I’ve been playing with in Lightroom using LR/Mogrify for the digital mats and text. What do you think of the cropped sizes and mat bordering?
