Brisbane City
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

Joining in the global discontent, a tent city has appeared in Post Office Square. Similar protests in other places have been forcibly removed. These guys were not making much of a fuss when I was there, but it was the middle of the day and too hot for such things.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
@ 30/1mm
Exposure: 1/4000" @ f/22/10, 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. Blacks +25, Recovery +65, Clarity +100. No change to the curves.

The wash-up:

I came by at the wrong time for action. Everyone was in the shade and not making a fuss. Probably the best time would be at the weekend.
