Brisbane City
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

Brisbane provides free parking for motorbikes. They park on the footpath in specific bays but the bays fill up quickly so the latecomers just park outside the bays, as you do.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
@ 18/1mm
Filters: 0.42x fisheye filter (fisheye mode)
Exposure: 1/1250" @ f/9/1, ISO 400

Post processing:

Lightroom - ...

  1. Auto apply a B&W preset I have called "PSKiss-FilmStyleBW-04". It auto applies curves (highlights -25, lights +40, darks +10, shadows -25), brightness +50, contrast +25, clarity +55. The colour mix emphasises blue and purple a bit and de-emphasises the others a bit.
  2. Used lens correction for Canon EF-S 18-55mm, to slightly correct some distortion; cropped and rotated out the rest

The wash-up:

I'm happy with this one as it is.
