This was one of my first digital photos. I was excited. My new toy (a brand new Sony DSC-V1) just came in the mail and I was anxious to try it out. First thing that came to my mind at that time of the day was to catch the sunset. So I went to the highest point in town and took a series of photos that proved me that I had much to learn (and after all these years, I still do). The available light was decreasing by the minute. So I was almost ready to leave taking a last shot to a street lamp when all the street lights lamps turned on. I stared for some seconds and decided to try a different composition. So here is the first attempt. This was one more lesson about light. I was amazed how I got the right parameters so quickly... and how, after several attempts, I couldn't repeat the unexpected.
