The Orion test flight through remains of the abandoned Apollo test pad

let me tell you a little something about exposure. The sun was behind clouds and it was directly behind the camera in this shot. It was not bright at all. Not even close to as bright as the three Orion engines. Had we set exposure to capture the sky better (at that day’s dawn) the pad would’ve been blown out like crazy because the exposure of the scene pre launch was something like F5.6 at ISO 400 and 1/200 of a second. Shoot a rocket at that and you get a giant white ball. Now had the launch been held for even 20 minutes or an hour like it was the day before, the sun would’ve been much more intense (maybe, depends on clouds) and exposed the scene much more. We chose to expose to the rocket because it is a constant. The sun and clouds are not a constant variable, so it is silly to expose to it.
