I know times are tough, but still.... As I was entering the grocery story two cashiers were taking two cases of Heineken away from some young "dude" who insisted he paid for them.
I went about my business and was headed towards the check out when said same dude with a hoodie over his head is making his way past me and right out the door with two cases of Coors in hand.
I tried to follow him and alert the staff, but the place was packed and he got away.
There was no excuse for this guy stealing.

Clouds have possibilities, they can turn the sky into incredible colors, or they can make for a dull gray dud of a "sunset".
Luck was on my side. The sky lit up and it started to rain slightly. There was a couple on the beach along with me. When the rain started, they were quickly trying to get off the rocks they were sitting on to make the long trek back to wherever they had come from.
In that moment I was able to capture an inspirational image of love and friendship, just before I too had to double time it out of there.
I'm glad I took the chance on the sunset. Now a frozen moment in time.

This image is the reason I shoot in manual mode (which isn't the case here). I usually set my aperture and do a test shot in aperture priority mode to see what the camera thinks the shutter speed should be.
What you are seeing here is what the scene looked like, but that's after lots of post processing. I had to bring the exposure up by a stop and a half and add some fill light. All done in Photoshop.
I have shots done in manual mode where I didn't have do this. The test shot told me right away that the camera was underexposing the image. All the more reason for doing it. Test shots quickly get me in the range I want to be in for a certain aperture by either dialing up or down the shutter speeds, or even changing the aperture.
My point here is that you can quickly get better results if you let your camera assist you. Take some test shots and dial in your settings to get the results you're after.
Why did I even bother keeping this shot? HDR - I can use it with other shots I took, but that's another subject.
