Experiments in Composites

We should always strive to improve and create something new. One of those areas in which to experiment can be editing. I've been trying to push myself with seeing what I can create that uses imagination, combing different shots.

So the artwork attached here is a combination of two panoramas I've taken. I've got a really abstract piece that I've also created in a similar way, but that's not one that I want to post online. There's some things that are better seen in person and that creation definitely is one of them.

This however was just to see if I could. I think it somewhat works.

Yes. This is a composite of two different photos taken at different times and combined as an experiment.

Watching the Moon Rise

I mistimed my latest adventure to shoot the milkyway. I hadn't realised the moon rise was going to be so close. Originally I'd intended to be there at 7:30pm, but the skies were overcast so I stopped for coffee and to catch up with some friends. By the time it cleared enough it was around 8:30 and I caught some wicked shots just as the moon rose.

Shortly after I decided it was too light and went home, but I did have a panorama that promised to turn out well, and here it is.

My camera died again. Wasn't working for two and a half weeks. I'd all but given up, but on Saturday while still in denial I decided I'd try getting it to work once more. I put in a battery, flicked on the switch and it turned on as if nothing had happened at all.

So of course I found myself at a beach within hours. You'd think I'd know better than to go near water by now.

The glow on the horizon there is from the moon that rose roughly ten minutes after I took this.

I got soaked again.

This was the last shot I got, around about the time that dawn happened (it was grey), before I got soaked and my camera called it quits for the morning. +Justin Thornley was witness to the moment that I got sandwiched between too waves bigger than me, but unfortunately missed the money shot.

I quite obviously need to go back and try to recapture this particular shelf.

I'm still not certain which part of sunrise I prefer the most. The Pre-dawn, or some of the colours you get after the sun has actually risen.

Sometimes you just have have to sit back and watch the sunset. This may or may not be related to having a full memory card.

So then I took phone shots too.

I mentioned that my camera died, this is where I was.

A wave hit the rock shelf behind the one with all the water cascading off it in this photo. It was roughly ten meters away and went sideways. I was soaked, camera was soaked, and I think I had 10cm deep worth of water in my bag.

Turns out the sunrise looked better on the other side of the peninsula too. Ah well. I did get this.

Coffee and catching up.

Now I just need to post some other photos. I've been way too quiet lately.

The only regret I have is that I couldn't be in multiple places, or that the sunrise wasn't longer.
