As I was walking down the beach I noticed this group of geese flying. Due to the limited time of reaction I had to get this shot I quickly composed it the best I could and didn’t pay attention to what the settings on my camera were. Seconds after capturing the shot the geese were already too far on the other side of the sun to get anything that would have been decent. I looked at the photo on the back of the camera and thought for sure that I wouldn’t keep this photo as it seemed way too overexposed. After letting it sit in LR for a couple of weeks I decided to see if I could make anything out of this photo. Because of the dynamic range my camera has I was able to lower the exposure quite a bit and it turned out to be a decent shot after all. I also think of a sunset when looking at this photo but it is actually a sunrise shot.
