I had a great time photographing around Xinjiang, China last month. Amazing scenery. Friendly people. And heaps of interesting things to see.

Bolton Street Cemetery - an intriguing place just back from the Terrace in Wellington. 

This was at dusk, at dawn the light was from the wrong direction to get this nice lighting.  I have tweaked up the contrast and tweaked down the clarity in LR, darkened the edges and dodged and burnt a little but this is close to the original capture, as I waited for the light to be just right.  (I didn't sit there all day!)

The graves and headstones were moved when the motorway was built right through the cemetery back in the 70s. A mass grave contains the remains of 3,693 colonial residents.

It's been a while since I have been on G+ - how's it working out for you?
Here's a photo to grab your attention - I took this in Wellington at the weekend, just on dawn.  I used Lightroom's perspective correction tools to square it all up.  I know this has been done to death, but I still think it looks pretty cool.

Last week I did a shoot with one of my favourite models, with a hippy theme. That was just so much fun!  I thought I would share just a few of the keepers.  These are processed in Lightroom and/or Color Efex Pro 4, which I am just starting to learn.

This looks terrific printed on Velvet Fine Art paper - very chiaroscuro!

Another Tui photo.  This is not a photoshop creation.  I took this in Parliament grounds from a slightly elevated position, and moved around until I could line up paving in the background.  It looks fantastic printed on Epson Velvet Fine Art paper!

It looks somehow hyper real and yet not oversharpened.  No idea what you did.  If you got rid of the flax leaves in the bottom corners it would be AWESOME :)

Another photo share if you don't mind, on a completely different subject.  I stayed a couple of nights at Bushy Park in Whanganui.  I would completely recommend this place for bird photography, particularly Tui, Saddlebacks, Kereru, Fantails etc.  And the Robins are like sandflies - even pecked my toe!

I had a photo where the model looked elf-like, so I went with it and got this - what do you think?

The composition of the photo is very excellent. The opposition of the background and the foreground is very nice. However, I don't know, there's something missing. Perhaps, it's the make-up and the haircut of your elf.

I came up with this treatment almost accidentally - does it work?  Looks good to me but it's 1am and maybe it's not that great.
