An old, brick building with trees in foreground, middle ground of an elevated train-track with train running on it, background of city buildings.


Go Between Bridge, South Brisbane
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

I see this shot often and I've been lusting after it for months. Sacrifice: when I'm out for a run, stopping for a minute or two to take this shot means my run-time is going to be rubbish. Worth it, in this case.

Result of post-processing has been a slightly HDRish look. Up to the viewer to decide if that is justified - I think it adds to the juxtaposition.

The camera & lens:

Camera: iPhone 4
Lens: iPhone 4 fixed lens (30mm equivalent) @ 3.85mm
Exposure: 1/140" @ f/2.8, ISO 80

Post processing:

Lightroom 5 -

  1. Basic: Highlights -100 (brought back detail to the sky), shadows +50, clarity +75
  2. Post-crop vignette: Amount -25
  3. Noise reduction: Luminance +20, detail +100

The wash-up:

Maybe a bit too dark. I need to view this on some different monitors to decide. My MBP monitor tends toward being quite bright; desktop Dell monitor tends towards dark.
