    What are your thoughts on this shot?

    I like it. Nice and sharp, good light, good color balance. My only suggestion would be to crop out more of the top. The wires don't add anything in my opinion.

    Black and White or Color for fog shot

    I like the black and white because it seems to me to fit the scene better........the colors are already muted and the black and white brings out the shapes, highlights and shadows nicely. It's all subjective.......maybe at another time I'd prefer the color. Good catch either way.

    Whatcha Think? Exposure Difficulty

    always use manual if you can. You won't have to deal with issues like the lights changing your meter.

    My first experiments with an DSLR

    All that I would add is to avoid auto ISO because you usually want to use the lowest ISO you can for a scene to get the best quality. Avoid auto white balance unless you shoot RAW files. The white balance can be tweaked much better on a raw file then a Jpeg or Tiff. Shoot Raw for the best...

    A late fall day at the IRM. Perfect weather. I was walking around with another photograper,concentating on shooting macro work. This scene just caught my eye and I had to try to make it work.
