I like this, nice composition of interesting subject in an odd environment.

Thanks for leaving a comment, Ken! This one was "exposed to the right", and also desaturated, though with that bright green it is hard to tell.

What do you think about that "expose to the right" can you tell a difference?

kenfowkes on December 8, 2012

This was a low-dynamic-range lighting situation, so I thought it was a perfect opportunity to try exposing to the right. The scene was dark, and the camera's default exposure made the image about a stop too bright, still leaving about a stop of unused dynamic range at the right. I took shots at the default exposure, and one stop brighter, which put the histogram pretty much all the way to the right. Both exposures needed to be shifted back down (I used lightroom), the standard by about one stop and the other by about two.

I can definitely see slight differences, but honestly, not ones that make either image look better than the other. The lighting was varying due to moving clouds, so it could be just that as far as I can tell.

Photos like this have already ever all my love. The lightening benefits the softness of the greens. The reflexes of sky in the underground show that there is water and emphasize the floating.

You have very interesting pictures in your gallery.

LIKE and best wishes, gisela
