Photo Friday: Natural Polarizer

One of my favourite filters, when I was shooting with my old Minolta X-700 SLR, was my polarizing filter, which would apply a highlighted contrasting effect between light and dark.

The next-best thing is natural lighting.

If the sunset shines on bright objects when the background sky is naturally darkened, say, from storm clouds, a natural contrast would be accentuated.

This was the situation I was given the other night, when I picked up my daughter from the Britannia Yacht Club. I caught it with my D-SLR.


While I did pump up the colours, I did not play with the contrast. I let Mother Nature take care of that effect.

Happy Friday!
