The Waiting Table

I took this picture while we waited for our lunch, from under the front canopy of the restaurant along ‘Quai Sainte-Catherine’ at Honfleur, France. I liked the view of this shot panned out from the table to the other patrons and finally the boats in the harbour. I had to bracket the shot with five exposures being a little uncertain of the reading with my Weston Euro meter. Between the dark shadows under the canopies and getting a happy medium with the bright sunlight in the harbour and without silhouetting the people opposite. I’m very please with this image how it came out in the end.
