After yesterday’s Happy Accident, I decided to try to get one On Purpose, and I must say that the Happy Accident turned out better, and was much easier to recognize as ‘shot-of-the-day’ than this one. Of course, it didn’t hurt that the Happy Accident was the only picture I took yesterday, but it screamed “I’m the One” immediately, whereas I took 12 shots today, and massaged most of them before settling on this one, mostly because it had the widest range of color.

I’ll keep playing with this idea, keep mulling it over, and see if I can come up with something more to do with this picture-making technique, but I’ll not be counting on any of them as 365 entries.

One thing I need to try is a lower ISO. And I’d also like to see what a deliberately defocused version looked like… And double exposure might be interesting, though I suppose manual mode and more intensive pre-set-up would be required, and I’d only be able to get one shot… And maybe HDRifying one for no reason too…

I’ll add these ideas to my shot list directly.

D7000. Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 ai. ISO800, 15 seconds (AP mode), f/8. Processed with heavy hand in Aperture.
