Week 1

So I'm late for the first posting for my 52 Week Project. I realized it is difficult to beat the Saturday posting. I'd rather post it on Sunday morning so I could have little more time with husband dear and adorable son.

Anyway, here goes the two favorite shots of the week"
Ranking on my first was taken Friday, July 23 for a prenuptial shoot. This was done with my shutter addict classmates.

Gear: Nikon D40,Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, standard studio setup
Settings: f5.6, 1/15, ISO 400

Post process: Lightroom v2
Corrected crop to focus on ring as a subject.
Used tool brush for clarity and sharpness of the ring.
Online watermarking with PicMarkr!

Second on the rank was taken in an exhibition of the Saadiyat Island Cultural District which can bee seen at Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi. It was well worth the trip.

Gear: Nikon D40,Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR
Settings: f5.3, 1/30, ISO 800
Post process: Lightroom v2
Played a little with the white balance and curve.

Next week, I will try my best to lower my ISO.
