You are supposed not to transition from an out-of-focus foreground into an in-focus background, or blow your highlights. Although (using my new old camera) I could have retrieved all the highlights in the sky, I decided a notch of pure white actually looked more effective. The Topaz Adjust “dramatic” filter has been applied the sky too, which risks making parts of it darker than the lit grass (another non-no).

Oh well …

Quotable

Note that everyone directly involved in the development of ISO standards is a volunteer or funded by outside sponsors. The editors, technical experts, etc., get none of this money. Of course, we must also consider the considerable expense of maintaining offices and executive staff in Geneva. Individual National Bodies are also permitted to sell ISO standards and this money is used to fund their own national standards activities, e.g., pay for offices and executive staff in their capital. But none of this money seems to flow down to the people who makes the standards.
