Metering probably got thrown by nebbish (2.00 / 0) #1 Fri Jul 27, 2007 at 12:16:54 AM EST
By the big chunk of white on the wet paint sign - maybe the wood's come out too dark? It's a tricky one.

It's political correctness gone mad!

Can be tricky. Underexpose the wood, or overexpose the sign? In chemical processes photography you might choose a different grade (?) of film. Not sure if there is an equivalent for digital photography. Something to ask a pro wedding photographer, with the white dresses and black suits its an issue the deal with daily.

Probably right about film by nebbish (2.00 / 0) #3 Fri Jul 27, 2007 at 01:54:24 AM EST
Something less contrasty maybe. You could probably do something in Photoshop.

It is perhaps a little dark by stark (4.00 / 1) #4 Fri Jul 27, 2007 at 03:25:14 AM EST
I did fiddle briefly with curves in PS to lighten it a little; perhaps more is needed. I quite liked the gloomy feel, though...

I don't think there's a wrong or right way by nebbish (2.00 / 0) #5 Mon Jul 30, 2007 at 12:17:09 AM EST
You hear a lot about perfect exposures, but when it comes down to it it's what you like best that counts.
