What's up with this?
This past week I was up in the Whjite Mts of New Hamphire on a fall foliage photography trip when a beautiful sunset began. I pulled off the road to take pics with my D3s. I just couldn't capture the wonderful pink sky clouds & colors. My pics were washed out. I tried a lot of things but nothing worked. There were two others with me and one of them was getting terrific sky color. She said "Put it in Shutter priority"! I could not fathom what difference that would make but desperate I tried it. WOW. All of a sudden my sky color showed beautiful pinks! I don't get it!!! Please tell me WHY being in shutter spped priority would make a difference? All I can think of is that the exposure might have been longer?
I have not had a chance to examine the "before & after" images to see the difference in settings because my computer has gone south on me. Maybe by tomorrow night it will be fixed and I can do a little research. Anyone want to offer an opinion?
