GOLDEN GLOW
Perth, Western Australia, Australia

'Elizabeth Quay is a major Western Australian mixed-use development project in the Perth central business district. Located on the north shore of Perth Water and centred on the landmark Swan Bells, it is named in honour of Queen Elizabeth II.

The project includes construction of an artificial inlet on what was previously the Esplanade Reserve, and modifications to the surrounding environs including Barrack Square. A cable car to Kings Park has been allowed for in the plans, although this would not be constructed in the initial phase and is subject to approval from the state government.' [Wikipedia] (2143)

DON'T GET TRAPPED
Addiscot Beach, Victoria, Australia

The cliffs along the Great Ocean Road are ever changing. The sea keeps encroaching the land with the result that the tall rock faces eventually give up and fall to the beach below, where the tides continue to dominate. I find that it is important to consult the tide times before venturing to some of these beaches so that I don't get trapped by the sea. Even though the tide had turned and was meant to be subsiding, I still had a difficult time passing this stretch of Addiscot Beach. (2144)

Kedumba Tributary, Blue Mountains

In driving rain, the Kedumba Creek splits and overflows into many small streams. The Katoomba Falls becomes a raging torrent and smaller waterfalls appear along the escarpment. In dry times, the paths cut by these streams may be mistaken as walking trails with dangerous results.

A panorama toned for structure and output sharpened.

This was shot in rain with mist rising. The settings were: f/4.5 1/125 150mm ISO640. I seldom have the luxury of shooting at ISO 100 because of the high contrast environments i work in. Perhaps also, because i am not shooting for high gloss printing, i can experiment with lots of different types of tonal finishes, which is very liberating.
Here the soft finish is partly a result of rain interacting with post processing structural toning and (less surprising) output sharpening. (Post processing toning was a deliberate choice to emphasize horizontal and vertical elements of the scene.) (thanks to +Gabrieltg Jjjj for prompting this information.)
