I had hoped to catch the sun before it peeked above the horizon, but by the time I’d driven into town I was about 20 minutes late. The light was still pretty mellow and subtle anyway and the weather was fine so there were lots of photographic possibilities. By the end of the shoot it was becoming a little bit more overcast and later the weather turned lousy so I was lucky to get there early!
My first panoramic shot of the Iconic Newcastle Beach captured using a Canon 450D with a Standard Canon 18 – 55 mm lens set at f/8 and 18 mm, mounted on a tripod. The 2 shots were imported into Photoshop Elements 7 where I increased the canvas size to fit both of the images, added a black border and then down-sized the scale of the whole image back to 12 MP dimensions.
