Yikes! Washed out sky.
|f/4, 1/800, ISO 200|
Hmmm...doesn't seem to be better.
|f/9, 1/125, ISO 200|
Somewhat better but I couldn't capture the flag in motion because of the slow shutter speed.
|f/22, 1/30, ISO 200|
Different angle at f/4. Too dark.
|f/4, 1/3200, ISO 200|
This is probably the best I got that day.
|f/10, 1/320, ISO 200|
It's a delicate balance between the aperture and the amount of light you get. With larger aperture, the camera opening is also larger, hence, more light enters in. Meanwhile, the shutter speed adjusts with the aperture and could affect the end results. Ah, so many things to considered!
