Just returned from Alaska cruise with family. It was most chalenging and difficult photography ever with disapointing results. Son with D7000 and 18-200 Nikkor, Granddaughter with D50 and 18-200 Sigma, I used D7000 and 18-200mm Nikkor, D80 and 10-24mm Nikkor. The sky was overcast white and mountains were also white. Constant light rain made visability poor. On D7000 I used manual settings and did not always compensate for brightness in snow and had lot of overexposed. My D80 was accidently turned to manual and had overexposed entire outing since I did not check since I gave priority to D7000. All taken in JPG.
At the glacier calving I photographed RAW but at critical time buffer was full and I had to wait. Grandaughter had good series of photos and son had his camera in video mode and got nothing. One thing I learned. The more you learn about photography more is to learn.
took 5000 photos, Son took 1500, Granddaughter 150. Winner was Granddaughter with series of glacier calving images.
