208th place
Taken at Oak Alley, La on 12/13/2009. The day after Christmas 2009 I shrunk/cropped the picture to use as a desktop background for my home computer. I prefer this version to the original. Oak Alley is old plantation home about an hour west of New Orleans. My wife and I visited there during our fifth wedding anniversary holiday in Louisiana.

Taken: Sunday, 13th December, 2009
Focal length: 12 mm
Shutter speed: 1/80 sec
Aperture: F3.2
ISO: 200
Notes: It was an overcast day and the auto mode of the camera was producing some very slow exposure times, so I shot several pictures in the "Sports" mode which lowered the ISO to 200 but produced faster exposure times. This is a technique I use sometimes when I want to avoid using manual settings.
