    World Cafe

    I was in Toronto about a month ago, learning how to use a Sony RX100 I recently purchased and took the photo of a marina at night. I set the aperture priority as wide as possible with ISO 125, rested the camera on a rail and hoped for the best. I posted a photo a week or so ago and had feedback from Donald on not pushing the post processing and suggesting getting something better than Picassa to use. I downloaded Lightroom and think it is a great new toy. Now I have my camera to learn and Lightroom. Here's the original cropped, then highlights and shadows adjusted, then pushed the exposure to reveal unintended social commentary.

    If you look on the bridge just above the $5 on the sign there is a photographer there. Here is the view in the other direction. (Same rail.)

    Nicely done George, especially the "Lightened" version of the first image. Now you need to get yourself a tripod (if you haven't already got one) as this will allow you a lot more flexibility with this sort of shot. In particular, you can use a smaller aperture to get greater depth of field. This is significant for the RX100 as I believe it has a fairly large 1" sensor (pretty impressive for a compact camera).

    Donald, Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction.

    Dave, A small tripod is in the mail. I'll concentrate on depth of field next.

    I did check out both your sites - different styles and great pictures.

    George
