Brisbane Central station.
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

At Central Station there is a clear perspex roof over one section. The amusing thing about a clear perspex roof is eventually it gets scratched to hell, and become brittle and quite not-clear any more.

The camera & lens:

@ 77/20mm
Exposure: 1/100" @ f/28/10, ISO 125

Post processing:

Lightroom - I took this on both the DSLR and on the iPhone, and this was one occasion where the iPhone shot was better. I spent a while on the DSLR shot but it just didn't look like much. This was just in point and hope mode (P) so maybe with a bit more control I could have gotten the shot right. For processing, I set clarity to +100 and sharpening to +50. I cropped and rotated, to give a bit more of an interesting angle.

The wash-up:

I like this one better than the shot I had planned, which was of the main part of the roof, with fewer beams.
