This past week has been a little crazy for me. Today is the last day of class and I worked a game for the last time this semester on Sunday. Friday (4/25) greeted us with rain, but the rain subsided in time for the 7pm baseball game. Because of the clouds, I knew there would be a good opportunity for a picture during the game so I patiently waited by the patio at the stadium waiting for the opportunity to arrive.
While my best shot came about half an hour before sunset, I was really happy with the way the sun was shining through the clouds and the HDR feature on my iPhone managed to do a really good job capturing the moment. I did enhance the picture a bit to get a greater contrast and exaggerated even more so using Instagram when I posted it there. I really like this picture because of the sun of course, but also because of the people you’re able to see in the foreground enjoying the game.
And I really liked the way it came out for Instagram. It even got reposted by the athletic department’s official Instagram account.
I tried to take some pictures with my Nikon 1 as well, but I wasn’t able to get the exposure just right to be able to get the same effect as my phone did. You can see those attempts below as well as the non-HDR version of my phone’s picture.
