Same Old Same Old?
When I started this blog last summer, my intention was to model it a bit after one of my all-time favorite photography and information blogs, Fog Bay. I try to feature something new and different, but interesting every time I post here. I confess, though, I haven't been as diverse as I'd like to be and I find that rather than posting one photo of something--like National Cathedral, for example--I post three or four photos over as many days.
The same is true of today's entry. I was out last night taking pictures of the Lincoln Memorial at night. I've already posted pictures and information about this memorial previously, so instead I'm going to steal a page out of Debi Cates' book (another blog I love) and ask you which you prefer.
Both of these were taken one right after the other. Please pardon my lack of photography jargon. I'm still learning here. The first one was an eight-second exposure without fill flash; focal length: 9.57 mm, exposure bias: -2; f 3.2. The second photo was also an eight-second exposure, but this time I used fill flash. The focal length was 7.30 mm, exposure bias: -2, and f 2.8.
Which do you prefer?
