    Hey,
    I decided to set up this thread for you to post your pictures with increased exposure. I got the idea from watching an old episode of casulty on UKTV Gold last week and there are loads of photos of over exposed cities.
    Post your favourites.

    I was playing with a new lens and first shot under dim lighting conditions, then moved on to shoot under brighter light -- forgetting that I had kicked up the ISO!! Oops.... Talk about your high-key exposure -- LOL!! This is my cat sitting between the vertical blinds and the window, gazing out...

    Fortunately I realized my error as soon as I "chimped" and quickly corrected things so that the next picture came out like this:

    This is my first post, and I wanted to show off a picture I took that was accidently over-exposed.

    I am also curious if there is a way to repair this picture to not be so over-exposed.

    It was taken with a Digital Rebel XT.

    You have to copy and paste Geocities links.

    I resaved the images to lower quality so I can upload it to imageshack, then I said what the heck, stuck it in iPhoto and decreased the exposure 100% o:

    Unfortunately when an image is overexposed there is no way to really successfully save it because much detail is lost. When something is underexposed, some of the detail can then be brought out. The best solution? Reshoot!
