A Harsh Mid-Day Sun Is…

among the worst of conditions a photographer can face because of the heavy contrast created between the direct sunlight and shadows. It was with that thought in mind that Mary and I headed out on a 1.5 hour walk around our campground. Both of us armed with our new Sony DSC HX5V Digital Cameras…we decided to use the Intelligent Auto Adjustment setting which chooses from eight different scene selection options and automatically chooses the right setting and camera shooing adjustments…and let it do its thing. With only minor touch-up in Picasa 3…here are some of the results…

First a 180 degree panorama of the Olympic-sized pool which in reality is rectangular but ends up distorted in the panorama function…

We wandered around the campground and wooded trails and came away with these photos…

And finally…I caught Mary doing some “creative photography”…

Considering the harsh lighting conditions and minimal thinking on my part…I’m most pleased with yesterday’s test photos.
