Because it was a very rainy day here in the Bay Area (freakishly unusual for late June), and because I’m rethinking my game, I’m returning to the well for today’s shot.
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm at 85mm. 1/500 second at f/11, ISO 200.

Today’s commute photo: This scene perfectly suits my mood. I took the beach route for the last leg of the city section of my commute home. This is how Ocean Beach has looked for the past month. But hey, it’s summertime in San Francisco!
Because my commute photos are “run and gun” I don’t have time for filters or a tripod. For steadiness I sat the G11 on the wall that runs along the promenade. Once I had the shot on my computer, I used Photoshop’s “Shadow/Highlight” image adjustment feature to simulate a neutral density grad effect and darken the bright, foggy sky.
