A splash of color

This is another photo from my photo adventure on Sunday. I originally took this shot with my camera set on the auto settings. The colors were a little pale because of the reflection of the sun. I learned by underexposing this same shot, it made the colors more brilliant as you see here. Fun stuff!

I was coming back from a photo adventure with a friend and saw this sign on the way back. I love classic neon signs and definitely had to add this one to my photo collection of neon signs. It is from Broadway Cleaners in Redwood City, Ca.
I just got my first digital SLR, a Nikon D50, so there were will be lots more photo adventures this year. I got a chance to play with some of the features that allow you to control how the image will look. I have a lot to learn about the camera but it will definitely be fun.
