Brisbane City
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

+Al Warren has tagged me in the Five Day Quest virus/pyramid scheme. Take one photo of whatever is going on in your life and post it.

I like to run. I prefer to run in the mornings, as I have no set commitments between 4 and 8am, and I don't really need to be awake to run.

I set this up by putting the camera on the ground, setting a 10-second timer and a 2.5 second exposure. About half-way into the exposure, I jumped into shot and held until the shutter closed.

+David Hill, tag - you're it.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 650D
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS @ 15mm
Exposure: 2.5" @ f/18, ISO 3200 (10-second timer, manual everything)

Post processing:

Lightroom 5 -

  1. Basic: Highlights -100, shadows -100, black clipping -15, clarity +35, saturation -70, temperature -800 (change from warm, bright to cool and dark)
  2. Noise reduction: Luminance +35, detail +100
  3. Lens profile correction for Canon EF-S 15-85mm
  4. Manual lens correction: vertical +20 (to partially correct parallax error from camera looking up - mitigate but not completely remove) (in hindsight, could have used some more distortion correction here)
