This was one of my first exposure errors. It's easy for me to look through the viewfinder and adjust shutter speed and aperture and forget to check the exposure meter to see if I'm on the right track to take a good photo. This is the "before" picture. Below is "after." I would love to be able to tell you I learned from this mistake and it never happened again, but as you'll see from the cloud photos (also below) that were taken about 15 minutes later, I'm not always a quick study.
This was one of my favorite shots of the day.
