Day 56: POTD-Winter Play
It may be cold, but why let perfectly good playgrounds go to waste just because it's winter! If you look closely, you'll see kids in the background, sledding, and playing in this really cool playground.
I'm using my 35mm 2.0 lens, and they say that with primes, you "zoom with your feet." But I didn't wear boots, so this was as far as I was going! Settings were manual mode and manual focusing; ISO 400; custom white balance; ss 1/125 for the top photo, and 1/250 for the bottom. Even with custom white balance, the snow was a bit bluish, so I adjusted levels slightly, and sharpened slightly, added the frames, and that was it!
Oh, and unfortunately, I also had to add the comment verification back in because of the malware creeping into the comments with links, and I'd feel wretched if someone got a virus from my blog!
