Day 38


So far, the evening had been perfect: a romantic dinner, dancing, and finally a moonlit stroll through the park. But as Jack stood behind Diane with the rose and ring box, he realized his plan had a fatal flaw. There was no way he was going to be able to get down on one knee.






A professional photographer will tell you that this shot is impossible, because there's no way to get a focus on Diane, the tree behind them, and the moon, while leaving Jack a little out-of-focus. So in the interest of full disclosure, this is two shots put together. No matter how I shot Jack & Diane, the moon wouldn't look right, so I finally used two shots--ISO, aperture, and exposure time all had to be changed. Thanks to the magic of Photoshop, you get the best of both pics!
