Haunt of the Fringe Dwellers © Vicki Ferrari Photography by 

This was taken on the Gold Coast in QLD, Australia at the Coombabah Lakelands Conservation Area, between the board walk (the lake) and the walking path. I was pretty “chuffed” because I received the highly commended award in the Native Plants Category, in October 2008, in the Gold Coast City Council Natural Environment Photography Competition, The tree itself is a SHEOAK and it is called a fringe dweller because it grows in between the wet and the dry! This area has a sort of ‘magical’ feel, for want of a better description! I love the Australian Bush! I am a proud Aussie!

    Hey this is a very cool shot but I look at it and can’t help but think – How did she do that????
    Is it a composite of 3 or 4 layers?

    thanks garth! no layers as such but i tweaked it with photoshop, a bit of softening in the background. all the trees were there in the original, low aperture. is that what you meant? red bubble is very addictive, isn’t it?

  • Garth Smith
    Garth Smithabout 6 years ago

    Yes Vicki that is what I meant, its remarkable how much the main trees stand out.
    Yes you are doing it pretty much the right way as far as I can see.

  • ahhh! that button! i didn’t see that one…. must find my glasses! thanks garth!!

    Thanks Garth, good to know…. still learning all i can about redbubble! what happens if you put an uncalibrated colour image on redbubble?

  • Garth Smith
    Garth Smithabout 6 years ago

    Cool you found it.
    No personal experience about uncalibrated colour images.
    I was reading about it the other day and how the colours and/or tones dont render properly.
    Attempted to find the article I read it in, got sidetracked reading something else and still didnt find it. Maybe google will help.

  • ahh look… i found it again! i get sidetracked too – could it be sidetrakeus syndrome? maybe it is caught from cameras… i will check out google, for calibration, not for sidetrakeus syndrome!

    Very fine image! The softening is striking because with a long lens/large aperture putting the background out of focus, as your eye expects, the grasses near the foreground trees would be in focus too but here they are not. It makes the foreground trees really stand out. Nice work.

  • thank you charlie!
