    Brilliant use of post editing to make this a great shot and maximize the colors!

  • Thanks Ron! Processing was just HDR conversion in Photomatix and then a quick saturation and contrast boost in Iphoto. I thought the wonderful greenish glow from the tinted skylight panels in the roof warranted this. Cockatoo Island makes a great place for taking interesting photos.

    Great capture………………….and treatment

  • Thanks Barssel. Treatment wasn’t that much actually other than the HDR conversion, just a saturation and contrast boost. The light inside the workshop was actually quite good thanks to the big skylight panels in the roof.

    What a contrast there is in the 3 segments in this image. Perfect composition.
    And, as everyone else has said, the colours are superb.
    You have really captured the feel of this space.
    Thank you.

  • Thanks Jeff! So many great things and such great light in the bigger rooms on the Island, was my first timeon Cockatoo. I wish I had more time on the day to got more shots, will definently be back in the near future.
