The other day I was going through some older photos in Ligthroom, weeding out some of those that I should never have kept in the first place.
This one for instance. It was taken at the Detroit Riverwalk on an early summers evening two years ago. There was very much contrast to the scene, and the camera has obviously metered for the sky, resulting in severe underexposure of the children playing in the fountain. I should of course have dialled in +1 or 2 EV when I took the picture, but I didn’t.
However, milliseconds before hitting “delete”, it occurred to me that something might be hiding there in the darkness.
