Rule broken: proper exposure
Just as in the "example", I over-exposed and blew out this fellow's white hair in the sunlight, producing a bit of a "halo" effect. This had the added bonus of also captured the motion of the background vehicles, which adds to the idea of the image. The idea of an older fellow being suck in his march against time.
Proper exposure would have necessitated the use of ND filters or a smaller aperture to enable the proper usage of a faster shutter speed. But if I had done that, this would have been a completely different shot, I would have lost the intrigue of the motion behind the man.
To be honest, it was the vehicle blur I was originally attempting to capture, but I got lucky with this shot, and the man being completely in focus. I didn't expect to get any decent photos that day, I was just learning (well, playing) with the S3. I knew that by using a slightly slower shutter speed I may catch a fun shot, while not completely blowing out the images, which was what that days shots were all about.
