Photo of the Day: "Big Spring in the Afternoon"

Nikon D90, Nikkor 18-105VR, 18mm, f7.1, 1/200 sec., ISO 200. Landscape scene mode, matrix meter with no compensation on program exposure mode.

Post processing: increased saturation and contrast, and lots of recovery. You will note that I used no exposure compensation even though I was shooting in landscape (ergo, high-saturation) mode. I should have. Even with in-camera software working to tame the image, there's just too much dynamic range here, from the deep blue water to the brown brush in the lower right of the image, which is blowing out.
