    You have more light than I expected for that time of night.

  • I know you arnen’t a fan of HDR mate. This is an example of what HDR can do… give you detail in the dark areas that you don’t normally get.

    I’ve spent ages trying to figure out what you were trying to achieve in this image, William. And I’m still not sure. But I figure the extraordinary detail of the foreground, and the intensity of the lights, are made all the more extraordinary and intense by the muted background. Er… or something. Kinda. Ish. Hey, what the hell do I know?

  • LOL mate. I was trying to focus on the Victorian architecture and the brightness of the lights. The city lights of Melbourne that you can see behind are just an extra bit.

    Okay – extra bit. I like all that technical lingo. Now I’ll be able to use ‘extra bit’ when I’m commenting on stuff I don’t have a bloody clue about.

  • “Extra Bit” is a little-used photographic term. It means: ‘stuff i didn’t notice when I framed the shot’.
