MUST BE VIEWED LARGE TO APPRECIATE

Thought I’d try creating 3 exposures in Lightroom and processing in Photomatix Pro……Created this and I must admit…like it !!…Hope you do too !

Nikon D90
Sigma 10-20mm @10mm
F/11
10.0 Sec Exposure
ISO 100
Hitech 0.9 ND Grad soft
Hitech 0.9 Reverse ND Grad

Contrast, levels and crop in Lightroom, then created 3 virtual copies and exported to Photomatix pro and blended the 3 exposures together.

Taken at Yanchep Lake, Yanchep National Park, Western Australia.

Appreciating and capturing light is the cornerstone to my photography. combine this with the beauty of our Western Australian beaches and rocky coastline and you have something that should be both witnessed, captured and shared.

I hope I can inspire you to take the time to see a sunrise or sunset, on a coast or a rocky outcrop somewhere, and then maybe you can understand why for me, Photography has become a passion……

    I do like it Jonathan, excellent work mate …. well done!!

  • Cheers John…I never know just how far to take an image without making the original image seem almost pointless !! I think that’s why I like just a subtle tonemapping rather than the more harsh HDR effects !!! I gues like everything photographic..it’s personal !

    a good crop and great colours, awesome work

  • Cheers Joel..That’s the only trouble with the 10-20mm lens, what seems to fill the sky looks so small in the photo that I almost always end up going for the tight letterbox crop !!..Thanks again mate.
