|-67 Ev for settling down highlights|
In the clouds
|-33Ev setting was still too dark|
So when taking the first few images the shots were very dark. It was several shots later before I realized that though I had been using my favorite "P" mode settings for the cloud shots I hadn't changed the Ev setting from -67Ev to -33Ev which is normal for my settings. In actuality I had to drop the Ev further to 0.00Ev to get the right color and highlighting.
Once I had this problem sorted the next one was to figure out how to get the most area of rainbow into shot. I had my big lenshood on at the time so this was causing some vignetting, but more importantly the rainbow was so close that it filled the entire frame and more. To get parts of it to fill as much of the shot as possible necessitated holding the camera at about 30 degrees to level to get the image corner to corner. As you can see from the wide angle shot, it wasnt possible to get the whole rainbow in shot.
|Acceptable at -33Ev but still needs work|
|Post Processing to bring out color and contrast. |
Color is very accurate in this image.
|Same post processing settings as above image, |
straightened and cropped for visual balance.
|Multiple rainbow refractions, unusual to see 5 refraction layers in rainbows.|
