Field of dreams

Mississauga soccer field

In the summer of ’98 we used to meet at this field after watching the world cup of soccer that was held in France. Obviously the hype of the world cup attracted a huge crowd and I remember that we initially had several teams which forced us to create a system were a team(s) stays off the field while another two square off for the right to remain on the field. Over time the crowds dwindled and some went off to create competitive teams while others joined leisure leagues and so on. That was 14 years ago and it seems like it was just a few years back! This image was actually taken on Christmas day in Mississauga, Ontario (~ Toronto for the international audience) from my Aunt’s balcony; there wasn’t a hint of snow on the ground but it was slightly cold!

    • This is an HDR image, so its multiple RAW images. In this case I used 3 brackets [-2,0,+2 EV] to generate the image. Our eye can capture a much larger dynamic range than our sensors, so going through the different exposure levels allow you to capture the full dynamic range of the scene. I hope I made sense πŸ™‚ And yes in this case I shot directly into the sun.
