Between Roma Street and Central Stations
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

Some grubs scratched up the train (they've scratched up every train). When the sun hits it in a certain way, it's quite striking.

The camera & lens:

@ 77/20mm
Exposure: 1/420" @ f/28/10, ISO 80

Post processing:

Lightroom -

  1. Curves: Highlights +100, lights +10, darks -70, shadows -100 - for great contrast.
  2. Slight crop to get rid of some window panelling
  3. Clarity +100, recovery +100
  4. Fine Detail: Noise reduction - luminance +50, detail +100, contrast +100; Sharpening +40

The wash-up:

This worked out how I wanted it to.
