On photo Denali in the Landscapes with a "Wide Open aperture" challenge (11 comments in total)
In reply to:

Reilly Diefenbach: A nice shot that would have benefited greatly from a correct exposure or exposures and much less garish contrast and color.

It was taken during a short stop off a tour bus. The driver was giving us too short a time at every stop to set up correctly for anything more than a phone camera snapshot. He was incessantly rushing us at every stop. Using a tripod meant by or before the time I'm set, I'd have to get back on the bus. So I had the camera set on aperture priority '2.8' to get max shutter speed possible to minimize camera shake. This and 200 other shots were 'point, click.' Very rushed.

I had no reason, other than above, for using 'wide open.' Thanks.

sierranvin: It's a great shot, but why'd you name it Denali when that mountain is no where in sight? Why not name it Everest or Kilimanjaro?

Title refers to Denali National Park

In reply to:

T bird: Sadly, this challenge is a bust. It appears that some folks have tried to sabotage it. Almost every entry has multiple half star votes, I have not seen this in the past.

I voted in this challenge. I didn't vote a single 1/2 star, but numerous 1 to 2 stars. Simply a clock in the picture, to me, doesn't convey time or time passing sufficiently. Hence my comment below.
