I feel like an NFL team’s operations manager trading a sentimental fan-favorite who’s gone past his prime. For five years my Sony Alpha 350 had delivered consistently good results under difficult conditions and mediocre coaching without a single day on the disabled list. Sadly, he’s technologically over the hill and it’s time to move on. I shipped him off to his new owner today.
Yesterday, perhaps 2 hours before sunset, I stopped by Philippe Park on the shores of Tampa Bay for one last shoot. These are the only two keepers from that effort. Even as I adjusted the curves in Photoshop, I was wondering if the new player with in-camera HDR wouldn’t have done better. It’s been real guy, but hey, business is business. Thanks for the memories.
