Following on from my post yesterday. Here are 2 more photos from the Narrabeen sunset shoot I went to along with my friends. 

The first is a 3 exposure HDR which I used to bring the colours out some more. For some reason by using just one exposure in Lightroom the pseudo HDR just wasn't turning out as I wanted. 

The second photo is of the rockpool at Narrabeen just few minutes away from the first photo location. There was a bag on one of the posts which someone had rudely left there just to ruin my photo but a few quick edits in Photoshop and voila.

While posting this I remembered the Fish n Chips we had from the one and only shop near the rockpool. The chips were bigger than the length of my hand (must be the potatoes from Chernobyl). +Steve Arnold and I did have the honour of the last order of the day just before the shop closed. Just in the nick of time...

A little while ago I went with +Steve Arnold and a few other friends to Narrabeen to get some sunset seascape shots. The breeze was cool and plenty but the tripods held up pretty well. 

Finally today I managed to download and process the photos from the shoot. Here is the first. 

This is a 4 minute exposure using my 10 stop B+W filter (aka welding glass). Few more to follow.

Couldn't believe it... There were empty seats on the train to the city this afternoon. On the last day of the year when I expected trains to be packed with people rushing to get a good spot to watch the fireworks. There's not a cloud in the sky so it should be a good show...

Here are some photos from this year's Sculptures by the Sea display at Bondi. I went there a few weeks back with +Harmeet Gabha.

Thankfully the sky opened up just long enough for us to take some photos. Bondi certainly put on a good sunrise that day. There were truly some very interesting artworks. Unfortunately didn't get to see all of them but will certainly go back next year.

Hi all. Here are some more photos from our trip to Melbourne. The first photo is a stitched Panorama of the Twelve Apostles. The journey along the Great Ocean road was long to say the least but I for one really enjoyed it. It was a cold and windy day so we had to be equipped with more than just the camera gear.

On the way there we stopped at Split Point Lighthouse which was another beautiful and windy location. The best thing about the stop at the lighthouse was the food we found nearby at Aireys Inlet Fish and Chips shop. They had the best burgers i've had in a while.

All in all it was a long but enjoyable day.

Hello everyone. It's been a little while since i've posted on G+. Things had been somewhat busy but we managed to fit a trip to #Melbourne . I have most of the photos processed already so here is the first one. This one is one of my favourites. 

This is Split Point Lighthouse. We stopped here on our way to the 12 Apostles. It was very cold and a windy spot. I took lots of shots here under the clouds but just as we were about to head back the sun managed to shine through and cleared up a nice blue backdrop.

Continuing with the theme from my last post, here is a shot of the Christ Church Cathedral in Newcastle, NSW. The size of the cathedral was enormous and it has a great location right on top of a hill. We spotted it when we were down at the beach.

The entrance is from the back so first impression is not the best but when you walk around to the front you get a great view and if you want to capture it you need at least a 14mm wide angle lens. I took this with my Canon 10-22mm.

Unfortunately for me there was a mass in progress at the time and I couldn't go inside to see what it was like. Maybe next time...

If you are into Photography as a profession or as a hobby (like me) you would know the name +Scott Kelby . I don't need to provide any introduction for him as i'm sure you know who he is. If you don't... please turn away from the screen and hang your head in shame... LOL just kidding. 

This photo is somewhat inspired by him. I was looking through his G+ photo album of photos he took in Paris. In these photos he showed a kind of effect that I hadn't seen before. The sky is blown out, the contrasts are high and the colour saturation is taken back significantly but still leaving some amount of colour. As soon as I saw those photos I knew I had to try it out.

I don't really know how he did it but here I tried to replicate the same effect on a photo I had taken of St Mary's Cathedral in Sydney. This is a single exposure so no HDR here.
