Deception Pass, Whidbey Island, Washington state | May 2012
Just a casual snapshot or is it ? So while walking on the deception pass bridge, I saw this speed boat (pardon my limited vocabulary of water sports utility vehicles) speeding through and about to pass the bridge underneath. I grabbed my camera and took a very quick snap just before it crossed over. Unfortunately I had a setting from previous shot to underexpose by 2 stops (setting for portrait on a sunny day with flash for subject lighting) and the results, as the camera was asked to, turned out a bit on the darker side and yet like a pleasant surprise, quite dramatic. Given the high contrast scenario under the mid-day light, underexposing, as it happened accidently, would have been the right choice anyways.. Casual snapshots can be fun !
