Lake Samsonvale sunset storm, Brisbane, Australia. Finally a break in the clear skies :-)

After weeks of clear skies (ok, well at least a few days :-) there was a hint of some storm clouds heading in over Brisbane yesterday afternoon. Definitely worth investigating so it was off to a nearby lake to see what sunset had to offer. Luckily there was a little break in the clouds just on sunset which made for a pretty little scene ... not great, but nice all the same.

All the best everyone.

Last month I had the pleasure of visiting the NT. I only had one opportunity to shoot Uluru and was grateful for the light and solitude on this particular morning. Prints here http://goo.gl/bxbneh

This photo was taken last Autumn, in Mount Wilson, the Blue Mountains. It's a magic place in Fall.

This is one of the classic photos, and the intention was to push it a bit further and into the artistic side.

Here's a scene from down on Australia's south coast called "the pinnacles". I captured this sunset over the ancient pink/red granite structure that reaches up and out of the ocean like the hand of a greek god. It's an epic land formation to explore and you're free to descend down in to the secluded bay at your convenience. That said, the descent was pretty difficult with a lot of sliding down a steep dirt trail. As you jump from giant red boulder to boulder you may spot a seal in the water or a wallaby eating grass on the hill, it's truly a place to be at one with nature. To put things into perspective, a human is the size of one of the red boulders that line the beach. So the pinnacles tower over you when you're down there.

Cape Woolamai is one of the coolest places I've visited and happy to share the experience with you all.

Journey

I think image processing is a real two sided journey, whilst a necessity for anyone who takes images in raw format, makes panos, blending etc I feel the more I know the harder it has become! The more techniques I learn (which is actually not that many) the more it seems to take away from the actual image taking and the more time is spent perfecting the image. Looking at some of my recent files and I noticed a trend in files names typically ending with edit1-edit2-final-edit-final-final-edit ;) ahhh I remember the days of shooting in jpeg on a sony PS and in hindsight they seem to be better images :)

Anyways, this image I have learnt a few new techniques, one of which is the Orton effect, i musta been under a rock not to know what that is - for those uneducated folk ;) it was coined by a chap named Michael Orton back in the film days and was achieved by taking a couple of different frames each with different exposure and focus, one frame was actually way out of focus, this was then exposed with a sharp version to create a type of soft glow, known as the Orton effect. There are a few presets in common image manipulation programs which now replicate it, one that comes to mind is called glamour glow which does a similar thing, however I have tweaked this with the original technique in mind.

So here with have it, edit1-edit2-edit12-edit-final ;)

Its a blend of 3 frames with the orton effect used :)

Earthrise

Narrawallee Beach, Mollymook, South Coast, NSW, Australia
NIKON D750 + 16.0-35.0 mm f/4.0 @ 18 mm, 6 sec at f/16, ISO 100

http://www.rc.au.net/blog/2016/08/21/mollymook-meanderings/

Just after 7AM the sun began to hint that it was going to crest the horizon. As it did the sky began to light up in pinks and fiery reds. It was going to be one of those mornings.

I’ve found myself this nice little crater shaped rock formation to include in my foreground. As a result it was just a matter of composing everything else around it.

A centred composition with a better unobstructed section of water between my crater and the rising sun. All the rockage is pointing towards my hero the rising sun in the sky. The pinks in the rippled clouds were forming nicely but the sun was very bright. As such I bracketed a set of frames here. I took five exposures from -2 & 2/3EV to +1 & 1/3EV. Finally in post I manually blended the exposures on layers in photoshop. Using a little manual blending plus some luminosity masking produced this final result.
