I was not too creative and made several mistakes with this image. So there are several lessons here. First, as I was walking along the rocks, I hit a slippery area and tumbled down on my knees and elbows. I made sure the camera was safe. After the fall, I lost my focus and interest and only took a few images. Lesson 1: if something happens, take the time to regain composure and then start again. I knew that I had an extreme dynamic range between the sky and the shadows on the bridge and ground. I did not take enough exposures to generate a blended image or HDR. Lesson 2: Take my time to capture the image and lighting that I am looking for. I put on a cheap polarizer on my lens. It leaves a little flare from time to time. I had discovered this before and still put the filter on. Lesson 3: Don’t put anything but good filters over good optics. No filter is better than one that even degrades the image a little. Anyway, this post is a good example of what not to do.
