Riverview, Ipswich
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

I set the camera up with my tripod and cable release, and set it to continuously shoot while I went around and emptied the trailer. I had planned the shot so that the tripod would be on the ground on the passenger side of the car. After some morning rain, the ground was rather muddy so I opted to put the tripod on the car roof instead.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
@ 33/1mm
Filters: 0.42x fisheye filter (fisheye mode)
Exposure: 1/320" @ f/14/1, ISO 400

Post processing:

Lightroom - I cropped the top of the image, and added a curve to bring in some contrast (this lens combination in bright light tends toward a low contrast, high key image). The curves adjustment had lights +35, darks -25 and shadows -20. Final touch was saturation +20 to bring some life back to the dumped foliage. I also did some spot corrections to take out some minor flare.

The wash-up:

I think the perspective from the side of the car would have been more interesting.
