The question is about enough light or not enough light to get sharp photos as well as images that aren't too contrasty to make the best photos.
I'm finding myself making photos in the early morning sunrise along riverbanks this fall. Love the tree color and reflections. And I'm also finding lots of Egrets and Heron along the way.
Shooting the D90 on a good tripod and not getting the sharpness I'd like. Maybe it's just a question of reach? Or lack of light? I'm sure I could have upped the ISO and pushed the shutter speed higher and the aperture closed a little more.
As for the Egrets, they're a whole other problem. Too much contrast. The white blows out and I lose detail. I pushed ISO, Shutter Speed and Aperture on these to work on sharpness. Maybe too far?
Thanks for the help. I emulate the work of you Nikonian Wilderness shooters and would love to try to post images half as good as yours.
