    I shot these 2 images of Charleston Harbor from the Mt. Pleasant Pier. The boat people were speeding away, and of the 15 or so images I captured in 2 bursts, this was the only one acceptable to keep. At 1/40 second on a moving target and nearing sunset, I felt lucky. The second, of the WW2 ships and marina, was seconds before sunset, and whereas the long shadows emphasized the overall contrast, the little sensor barely made it anyway.
