Pellican – Low Light

I made a trip to the Texas City Dike since I hadn’t been there in some time. I was gambling on the weather front passing through before the sun came up. I should have been a weather man because I got it wrong. It was a heavy overcast morning and I was going to make the best of it. Shooting ISO 2000 – 3200 was common since the sun was hidden all morning. With the D4, I never hesitated shooting 1600. Now I know going higher can be just as good. I use Photoshop to process my work. I used a slight noise reduction in ACR as I converted my raw files.
It sprinkled at times and then started raining as I was leaving. Half way home the sun came out with blue skies. There is always another day.
