off Loud's Hill Road, Sellick's Hill Range by 


There’s a dirt road on the hill face which stands out from a distance, and that I’ve been chasing for a while – until I discovered it was closed off. So then tried to
find a way behind it.
This was the solution – a road behind the range going up onto the summit.This panorama was taken on a cloudy day, through one of the fences but still at the summit of the Sellick’s Hill/Willunga Range. Gulf of Saint Vincent lies below.

    I’m gonna park my caravan up there and claim squatters rights ;) …what a great view to wake up to every day. Love those cloud shadows :)

  • Yes, and best part Umbra is there is a property for sale right at the top, with a great cabin-type house – you don’t have to squat – just win the lottery!

    Great location and scenery ! Nicely caught !

  • Thanks James – almost going to put it in the ‘as is’ group but had to crop it for a slight horizon tilt! Apart from that, it was straight out of the camera with that soft look before I go sharpening everything with software.

    Sharpening is something I stopped using years ago. Brightness, contrast or levels can give a better result and avoid a pixel-crazing effect. But it’s a nice view and well shot anyway.

  • Hmmm – I did once look into what sharpening (unsharp mask) actually achieves – I think it’s to do with darkening all outlines. I don’t go with generic figures when sharpening – always try for a minimum. I use curves a lot, because then I can control mid tones, light & dark separately. Contrast/brightness I find too broad to be useful. Levels I have only just started using – seems useful when editing from channels.

    I know how to use them all, but I don’t worry about channels – very professional of you, and very lazy of me ! :)

  • No, I just get tired of my lack-of-skill level from time to time and read an instruction manual. I know channels can be important with colour, and do have a particular ‘failure’ that I’ve been trying to work up tonally from channels – suppose I should get back to it! My other problem is how to select complicated stuff from backgrounds, I prefer drawing paths – which only works with simple forms. The more complex ones seem to take hours of ‘fuzzy select’, so I tend to get lazy about images that need specialised selection and editing in more than one area.

    So woth it to find that way up the hill … how fun that’ll be to roll down (with a big of padding)!!!

  • poupoune, only you could think of that! Roll down a hill?! The idea is both delightful and grass-seedy at the same time:) hmmm…padding…ok, giving it some more thought…

    Very lovely view and worth your efforts.So many photos are over processed making them, i n the end, all look the same somehow.My view is that most of the work should be in the composition and if it’s no good when it comes off the camera it’s not worth bothering with.See you round!

  • eagoodlife – howdy, you must be a local judging from your portfolio. In large part I agree, keeping in mind that the quality will vary between point-and-shoot (which I use) and a digital slr camera. I figure I end up with so much less detail, and sometimes software is a way to put it back – well, simulate it back:)

    Outstanding composition and depth of field! Wow what a view!

  • Thankyou Joanne, don’t know how i missed this. Pity it has to all be said in just one photograph – it was a remarkable view. Perhaps in different weather I’ll have an excuse to go back and take more shots!
