Picture This! -- Our Next Assignment
“Hey, Look At The Sky!”
Our next Picture This! assignment is “Hey, Look at the Sky!” There’s a glorious display going on every day above us. Show us your best shots of the amazing light, color, and design of the sky. It’s OK to have ground or foreground subjects included, but make the sky the star of the picture show. This photo of a glorious New Mexico sky was made with a Canon EOS 5D and a Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM lens with an exposure of f/11 at 1⁄60 sec at ISO 100. I tilted back to exaggerate and encompass the amazing range of color and tone.
