Today’s Photo Challenge word was PLATE. And somehow that led Robbie to an attempt on the life of Canadia. He thinks this set of pictures will come with no retribution, but he has been informed otherwise. In fact, the cops who detained him for questioning, when it turned out he was taking pictures on private property, may have been unwitting messengers from the Great White North.
Today’s entry is in the form of a photo storybook, inspired by the work of arch-nemesis of Dudley Do-Right, Snidely Whiplash. Multi-segmented metering was used, with the same exposure setting for each shot — being careful to use the same placement of the subject. One small plate was destroyed in this process, but no actual Canadians were harmed. Each image was bracketed at ±0.3 EV; +0.3 EV was chosen for shot one, and -0.3 EV was chosen for the second and third shot. This difference was expected, given the different placement of the greatest bear on earth. In addition, the initial meter reading was increased by 1/3 stop due to the heavy rail shadow, and to maintain the track bed in Zone V, and the rail shadow in Zone III and IV (far and near shadows, respectively).
