Brisbane City
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

This is a rare vacant lot in the Brisbane CBD. It's well sealed up but I was able to peek through.

I shot this yesterday, but chose another picture to post. This time, I knew what I was going for, and made sure the exposure and depth of field were as good as they could be.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
@ 30/1mm
Exposure: 1/320" @ f/4/1, ISO 100

Post processing:

Lightroom -

  1. Auto apply a B&W preset I have called "PSKiss-FilmStyleBW-01". It auto applies curves (lights +60, darks -12, shadows -12), brightness +45, contrast +45, clarity +50 and increases the colour mixes in all channels, but mainly green and aqua.
  2. Adjustment brush - to darken the foreground area, and to lighten the background area

The wash-up:

Maaaybe this would be nice and interesting at night, with a long exposure and dark sky.

What would you do?

      You bet. It has two street frontages, one is Adelaide St. It would be exceptionally handy for bike riding 🙂

        I stuck the camera over the fence a week or two ago and took an UWA long-exposre so I could see what was behind there. I’d love to get in there with a bobcat and carve a few tracks. It’d make a cool place for some fun on a Citybike 😉

          That helmet is a yellow citycycle helmet 🙂
          If you shoot it from the Adelaide St side, with UWA you might have a better point of view – maybe catch the bridge in the background.
