Palm Beach Rock Carving by Melissa Fiene
Clear

Nikon D300, ISO 100 14mm f/22 155s, Polariser, ND400, and Cokin filters.

Palm Beach, NSW Australia.

I was lucky enough to have found this interesting rock with carvings on it. I never knew this existed until now.. just shows its worth exploring a little :) I love that the evening light brings out the definition in the carvings.

    looks like a monster of sorts! what kind of carvings are they?
    great shot!

  • Thanks! I could make out a fish near thw middle and a crocodile crawling down the side (bottom right). I have no idea but they are very talented, they were quite deep. I thought it mixed well with the long exposure.

    Nice work! have you ever tried panoramic shots for these kinds of landscapes? Ken Duncan’s work is mostly super wide and stitched together. Needs a good sliding tripod head I read but have no experience

  • Thanks Simon, yes I’ve tried image stitching and love that you can get huge files from it, but for this kind of exposure it takes too long (almost 3 mins for this shot) and the light would vary too much over time to stitch them together. I did do a crop pano as my homepage pic though and I like it! :)

    Interesting, I hadn’t thought of the long exposure problem at that time of day! I’ve tried high Iso panos handheld but they didn’t turn out very good unfortunately. Then again you only need the details for large prints, else you can easily crop as you already pointed out. You’re doing so well lately, enjoy your work.

  • Thanks again Simon! I need to get back out again to get some more of these long exposures, I really love the effect!
