I know that I already wrote about St. Louis and how was unable to sleep due to jet lag. But on my big tour thru the United States called “From New York to San Francisco”, my next stop was St. Louis, MO.

The photograph itself is pointing east to capture sunrise and the foreground is a golf course. This photograph I took on a tripod and I did a full HDR at -3, 0, +3. When I directly shoot into bright light like the sun, I increase the exposure values from -2, 0, +2 to the settings mentioned.
Here are the settings of the camera in details:
- F-Stop at 22
- Shutter speed starting at 1/250 sec
- ISO at 50
Do you ask yourself the question why the F-Stop for this photograph is so high? There is a very simple answer to this question. Do you see the starburst effect coming from the sun? This is why. The higher the number of the F-Stop is, the less light the lens is letting to the sensor and the more you get that nice starburst effect!
