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.

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!

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.

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

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

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.
