Tall Ship in Sydney Harbour by Bob Culshaw

Tall Ship in Sydney Harbour by 

This is a 5 frame HDR image of an original RAW image, 2,1,0,-1,-2 EV’s taken on a Canon 400D, Canon EF-s 17-85mm IS USM Lens, ISO100,1/200sec,f10. Processed in Photomatix Pro and finished in CS4

This beautiful old Tall Ship had entered the Tall Ships Race in Sydney Harbour the day before (26th January 2008 – Australia Day) Seen here just having passed under the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Australia Day, also known as Anniversary Day and Foundation Day, is the official national day of Australia. Celebrated annually on 26 January, the day commemorates the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788, the unfurling of the British flag there, and the proclamation of British sovereignty over the eastern seaboard of Australia. (Wikipedia)

Shot was taken, hand held, from the stern of the ferry to Darling Harbour.

    How lovely this is and the colours are so beautiful. I also love the natural effect you have cept in your HDR work too!

  • Thank you so much Sylvia. Thanks, I always try to keep my HDR work as natural as possible rather than some of the ‘over-processing’ that you see, but I do appreciate it is a matter of choice and preference.
