Taken: Thursday, 26th August, 2010
Focal length: 48 mm
Shutter speed: 1/15 sec
Aperture: F11
ISO: 100
Notes: This was the most technical landscape I've ever shot. 3 image blend for a combination of exposure and focus bracketing. Each of the three images had proper exposure for their respective areas. One shot was exposed for the arch, on for the midground, and the last for the sun. The shot for the arch was focused on the arch, the other two were focused towards the middle. These files were manually blended in photoshop to produce the final picture - an accurate representation of that morning's sun
