When I posted about getting an actually satisfactory photo of this scene
a few months ago, I figured it would be a one-off. After all, shooting the grotto scenes in Pirates of the Caribbean can be very challenging--especially in the traditionally dimmer lit areas. But a few weeks ago, I gave the ride another spin--this time with my Nikkor 70-200mm telephoto zoom lens attached to my Nikon D750. And wouldn't you know it? I managed some decent results on that try too! The telephoto allowed me to be able to zoom in a little closer, capturing enough detail that I didn't have to over-lighten the shadows to bring a proper exposure. The result--a moody and pensive scene between two adversaries settling their score not on a pirate ship or a plank, but rather a game board.
|The chess game between two dead pirates continues, as it will... for perpetuity.|
