Photo: A view of Miami at dawn while aboard a cruise ship on our last day.
Taking a stroll down memory lane for today’s photo. The above shot if from a four day cruise to the Bahamas Cindy and I took in February ‘07 courtesy of my employer at the time. Pictured here is the view of Miami just at the crack of dawn (as the saying goes) as we watched the sunrise from our ship docked in port on the final day of the trip.
Ignorance is Bliss
Being from 3 years ago, this image was taken with my first DSLR, the Canon EOS 20D. In fact, I had that camera for less than a year by this time, and had very little knowledge of anything other than the Auto, Landscape, Portrait, and maybe the Night Portrait basic modes. Heck, I didn’t even know the difference between JPEG and RAW back then. In fact, I don’t think I took my first RAW capture for another year after this was taken.
It just goes to show you that, even back then, the auto modes on these prosumer DSLR’s are still pretty capable under some conditions, and if you don’t know every little setting on your camera, you can still get great images.
Now, if only I knew then what I know now, that would be a whole different story!
