Ipswich City
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

I dropped the Camry off at mechanics at West Ipswich, and walked home (5km or so).

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
@ 140/1mm
Exposure: 1/1000" @ f/14/1, ISO 1600

Post processing:

Lightroom -

  1. Auto apply a B&W preset I have called "PSKiss-FilmStyleBW-01". It auto applies curves (lights +60, darks -12, shadows -12), brightness +45, contrast +45, clarity +50 and increases the colour mixes in all channels, but mainly green and aqua.
  2. Presence: Recovery +100, fill light +5, blacks +15,
  3. Curves: lights +60, darks +25, shadows -35
  4. Temperature (to mess with the B&W input colours) - temp +4000K
  5. Noise reduction: luminance +50, detail +100

The wash-up:

Don't mind how it turned out.
