Lesson 19. Boats on a Pond, Maine

These boats were in a pond up in Maine, and it’s really a pretty unremarkable shot (especially with just two boats. One may be the “loneliest number,” but in photography, two of anything other than people can make for a graphically boring photo, but we can take care of that, right?). This photo has the whole ball of wax, from too bright of an exposure, to a bad white balance choice, to a pretty lackluster composition.
