I took my Pentax K10D on a photowalk through the old neighborhoods in downtown Carmel, Indiana, recently. I was getting to know the 18-55mm lens I bought for it before I took the kit on a road trip. Carmel is no Madison, the location of my last Thursday Doors post. But it still has its considerable charms.

The kit worked all right in my hands, but when I got home I had to warm up and increase exposure on every last photograph in Photoshop. It didn’t take very long but they’re steps I still wasn’t looking to have to take. I may explicitly set white balance for the conditions next time rather than letting the camera guess for me. Also, this part of the day was overcast; some photos I took later in the sun didn’t need any exposure help. So maybe on a gray day I need to overexpose in camera by 1/3 or 1/2 stop.

Old Town, as they call it, is a mix of architectural styles from the late 1800s to the present. That’s reflected in my photographs. Herewith Carmel’s doors.

    I think the bungalow at 330 something in the last picture is my favorite. The big wrought iron gate is interesting as well.

    My Kx does well with color balance but it does skew a little low on exposure and contrast.
