Paddington Reservoir Undergound by 

Here is proof that you don’t always need expensive equipment to get the shot!!
Tool of Trade today – Nikon S120 Coolpix Tonemapped using Photomatix and post processing in PS CS3
Shot Thursday 4th June 2009 – Underground at the Paddington Reservoir NSW Australia – Would you believe I stood outside in the pouring rain with my camera resting on the the iron gates and shooting thru the gaps whilst i did my +/-1 3 xp (the public are not allowed in here-but I see graffiti!!)

    This is wonderful and as you say with out expensive equipment. love the processing as as you say Graffitti is on the walls. Love the roof curves.

  • Thanks Karen – I seem to have a special attachment to those photos that turn out quite well with my pocket coolpix! Its a good lesson for those people just starting out on their journey with photography …don’t believe everything you read!!

    This is gorgeous and framed perfectly-excellent job especially shooting from the outside in-well done!

  • Thanks Ron, and yes the hardest part was the light coming in from the top of the stairs and the opposite side, HDR helped though!
