Every Day

Every Day

"Everyday" is an adjective. "Every day" is a noun phrase. This doesn't really speak to the subject of the photo, but I feel like corporate copywriters should know the difference.

Technical info: Shot with a Nikon D40 and Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G lens, in manual exposure mode. Aperture f/4, shutter 1/500 sec, ISO 200. Post-processing in Aperture 3: cropped; curves to bring up exposure; levels for contrast.

Thoughts for improvement: The truck kind of wrecks the composition, so I wish that weren't there. I also wish I had been closer, so that I wouldn't have had to crop so much out--it's left me with a fairly low-res image.



I tend to crop almost every snap I post. But then again, starting with crap means that I can't lose!

Mike Sakasegawa:

There's nothing wrong with cropping. I mean, heck, even Ansel Adams cropped his photos. And especially for web presentation, low-res isn't much of a problem. It's just that a 1.4 MP image doesn't scale well for printing--this would probably look like crap even at 10x14, to say nothing about a poster-sized print.
