Brisbane Central Station
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

I tried a few times to take this photo, but it was too late in the day each time. I ended up taking this at 11.30am (early lunch!) to get the sunlight hitting just the right spot. I also tried from many, many different angles to make sure I had the right one.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
@ 120/1mm
Exposure: 1/400" @ f/71/10, ISO 400

Post processing:

Lightroom - A relatively small amount of work done on this one: Curves adjustment lights +70, darks -10 shadows -5), then fill light +10 and blacks +5. I took quite a few test shots so this one was already laid out and cropped the way I wanted it.

The wash-up:

This is spot on exactly what I was after.
