Play with Light

Although we planned to complete this exercise today in our back yard, the weather has not cooperated, progressing from merely overcast to active rain. Instead, archived pictures are used.

These pictures were taken of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France, in October 2015, on several different days. Three different cameras were used, experimenting with f-stop settings and exposure time. The times of day include morning (one picture), afternoon (one picture), and evening (four pictures). The pictures are taken facing West.
