Location:Point Danger, Gold Coast (Qld-NSW border)
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:I set up the camera on tripod with a minute delay, and hopped down to the sand to for this photo. I called it off about two minutes in because I was getting bitten on my head by mozzies!
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 650D
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS @ 15mm
Exposure: 175" @ f/4, ISO 100 (M, bulb mode with intervalometer)
Lightroom 4 -
- White balance: Tungsten
- Spot removal: remove a boat that was sailing on the horizon
- Presence: Exposure +0.5 stops, highlights -90, black clipping +75, clarity +35
- Noise reduction: Luminance +30
- ACR lens correction profile for EF-S 15-85mm
The wash-up:I was a bit paranoid about someone nicking my camera (there was no-one around but also I was a fair way away from my gear). This meant I didn't keep super still during the exposure. Wide angle did help minimise how much this showed up in the final image.
