Near home, Ipswich
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 work from home two days out of five, and these are opportunities for me to take Evelyn to childcare and pick her up. Since it's only a short distance, we usually walk, ride or scoot.

+Steve Photoman Hayes - 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: 1/20" @ f/22, ISO 200 (Time priority)

Post processing:

Lightroom 5 -

  1. Crop
  2. Basic: Highlights -55, shadows +70, white clipping +40, black clipping -35, clarity +30 (increase contrast)
  3. Post-crop vignette, highlight priority, amount -25 (to centre attention on us two - otherwise there was too much bright blur that was competing for attention)

What would you do?
