This is another photo from Blakely Park, looking downstream along the Lackawanna River. The trees and the rocks are sharp. The water is fuzzed out a bit because my shutter was open for 1/3rd of a second.
I wanted it open longer, but it was a bright, sunny morning. All my experiments with a shutter speed longer than 1/3 came out overexposed, and I had the aperture choked down as far as it would go. The ISO was also at its low point.
I tried a fix during editing and they all looked really fake and phony.
So, what are the solutions? I can shoot on grey, cloudy days. I can shoot closer to dawn and dusk. I can buy some filters. Everything is on the table.
