Sunrise Fog

Sunrise Fog

f/20, 1/200, ISO-1600, 85mm

Grabbed this on the way to work yesterday morning. I’m pretty disappointed with it. I didn’t take enough time to set it up properly. I forgot to set my ISO to something reasonable from when I was learning the controls the night before. I should  have had this set to ISO-200 and f/5.6 or so and there would have been a lot less noise. On the other hand, my excuse is going to be that the noise adds character to this particular composition.

We’re always told to learn from our mistakes, and one of the things I learned from this one (other than don’t rush) is that my 70D is not going to do a stellar job at high ISO in low light. I applied considerable noise reduction in post processing to this, and it still is pretty grainy.

    I like it. The atmosphere of the fog is wonderful.

      Thank you! I did like the atmosphere and that’s why I pulled to the side of the road to get the image. But I do think it would be improved with a lower ISO. This image cries out of softness.

    I’d forget to set your ISO again,this is a great photo even with the noise.
