I drove the truck as fast as I could with the slow drivers in Ottawa all around me to get home from work to catch the sunset. Ran in the house, grabbed the dog and the camera and ran back out. Couple of seconds to think about camera settings and off we went.
I wanted to try the Velvia film saturation setting, so set it fine jpg + raw format. Fortunately I had the raw format as I found the Velvia to be a bit over saturated for my taste. As well, looking through the view finder I felt I needed to dial out some of the exposure so I went to -1 ev, probably should have only gone .3 or .7 but fortunately the raw files saved my ass.

|Jackson posing :-) Miss the focal point of his face and unfortunately shot in jpg only with velvia. Lesson learned.|
|Sunset over the pond behind the house. RAW image.|
|Sunset over the antenna farm in the backyard. Velvia film again but this time it kinda works.|
|Pano. Who says you can't do wide angle with a fixed 23mm. 6 vertical shots photomerged in PS.|
