This is a simple underexposed shot that I took while I was walking back after sunrise. The silhouette effect is caused by the sun’s really bright lights and also from the settings I was using. This is a common problem for most landscapers without Sq Filters because the light intensity of the sky vs the land/sea is different. Therefore, the given exposure by the camera is usually wrong. It requires photographer to take pictures in brackets (a Video to show bracketing technique) so that the correct exposure for the foreground can be achieved.
Settings – ISO 100, f8, 1/400s
Equipment – Pentax K-X, DAL 18-55mm
Place – Outside Flower Dome of Gardens by the Bay.
