General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:This is a plaque on the front of a government building. There are a few signs on this building, as well as cladding due to renovation works, but this plaque is some metres above eye level.
I had taken this photo a few days before hand, but chose another photo for the day.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Exposure: 1/320" @ f/71/10, ISO 400
Lightroom - I used a strong contrast curves adjustment (highlights +20, lights +20, darks -20, shadows -40), blacks adjustment (20), then recovery (100) to bring the highlights back under control. I also used clarity +100 to sharpen the edges.
