Temple of Heaven

Since few of us travel enough, it’s always a fun exercise to go back and re-work some earlier photos. So, today’s adventure took place four years ago with a Nikon D50 in hand. Just for fun, I took one lens on a trip to China. A 50mm is probably a poor choice to pair with a DX camera.

The skies were gray and overcast. No character at all. By stitching two photos together, I had just enough resolution to generate a retina resolution photo. Fortunately, I solved my ISO problem just in time. For an earlier set of photos, I had ISO set at 1,600. Because I was not paying enough attention, I ended up with photos with quite noticeable noise, especially in the shadows.
