One of many different pictures I took while in Corfu, I loved the different doorways, shutters and windows scattered around the island.
Thanks for viewing

Hi Haydn,

I agree with your thoughts on the doorways within the med - perhaps its the exposure to the sun or the bright colours, but they have a certian something don't they?

This shot caught my interest though as it illustrates a limitation of light metering (something I've been reading a lot about lately). In camera light meters assess the entering the camera and try to average the exposure to an 18% grey. This is nicely demonstrated here in the white brick work that looks somewhat off white. I took the liberty of looking at the image in PS and the levels are set perfectly - yet still the image lacks punch. The reason is simly that the meter has been fooled by the white and has rendered an average exposure turning the white to a shade of gray. Dialing in a stop or two of exposure compensation (+1 or +2) would have helped sort this out in camera, but its also easily corrected in PS using the curves tool.

Anyway, I hope you don't mind this ramble...

Hi Adam thanks for that info, exposure was a problem a lot of the time because of the bright light.
