Just a Touch Of Shade - Hill End NSW - The HDR Experience by Philip Johnson

Just a Touch Of Shade - Hill End NSW - The HDR Experience by 


Featured Focus on NSW
This shot taken on my recent road trip to the west of our state, this is one of the early morning mist in the historic goldfields township.

In 1872 what was, at the time, the world’s largest specimen of reef gold – the ’Holtermann’s Nugget’, weighing 285 kg and measured 150 cm by 66 cm with an average thickness of 10 cm.

After this the town grew to over 8000 people, making it one of NSW’s largest inland towns with a kilometer plus of shops, five banks, two newspapers, a brewery, 27 hotels – all doing well – now the Royal Hotel (1872) is the only one remaining

Equipment: Nikon D300, Nikon 18-200mm

Technique: HDR 5 Bracketted Exposures shot in brackets of 5 exposures, tonemapped in Photomatix, adjusted in photoshop elements and vivesa.

    Gorgeous image Philip. My grandparents had a weeping willow tree that was down by the river, so your image bought back lots of lovely memories from my childhood.
