Storm Damage by reflector

I found a part of a tree washed up on the shore at Horseshoe Beach inside the harbour at Newcastle in New South Wales, Australia one afternoon in Summer.

The shot was captured using a Canon 450D and a 55 – 250 mm lens set at 100mm, f/5.6, ISO-100 in Aperture Priority Mode. I applied one of my own Custom-Photographed textures to the image in Adobe Photoshop Elements 7.

I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.

    That is a magnificent tree root/branch – (what is the background texture?) Interesting treatment, fantastic subject

  • It looks like part of the trunk with a few branches as a bonus. I had a few shots of a guy bouncing up and down on it like a “natural trampoline” but unfortunately they turned out blurry.

    The texture that I photographed is concrete with paint splatters on it. Thanks for your compliment.

  • Thank you my friend! :))x I’ve been thinking about that texture and I can probably improve the image with a better texture than this one.
