Melbourne - Flinders Street Station by 

The Flinder Street Clocks are a long standing icon of Melbourne. People have for years been meeting “beneath the clocks” and no doubt there are so many romantic stories to be told. As the facades of it’s surrounds have changed, such as the demolition of the Gas Company building and the construction of the contemporary structure known as Federation Square, the Flinders Street clocks have remained the same.
Photographed with Nikon D700 and 24-70mm VR Lense

My interest in photography began back in high-school when I used my mother’s Olympus OM-1 to shoot sports events. I learnt to understand film, light meters and other technical issues. I bought my first SLR, a Nikon F70, when I finished uni and became more focussed on shooting portraiture, landscape and photojournalism. Since then I have not looked back opening my own business in 2009 specialising in portrait photography.

    woww … i love this shot! great composition, light and processing!

  • Thanks Spaniard. This was a bit of fun to create. It is 7 images done on 2-4 sec time exposures then overlayed in Photoshop. They were not perfectly aligned so I had to do allot of fine adjustment. Then I simply adjusted the opactiy till I got the mix that I wanted. Particularly happy with the ghost taxi!

    Thanks Stephen. I played in photoshop composing with many images to get it to look like this. There is an explanation I sent to the previous person who left a comment if you want the gory details. Thanks for your comment.
