Location:Spring Hill, Brisbane
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:There is a park at the top of Jacob's Ladder that has sculptures all through it. This is a combination of two ideas from the ideas factory and I think it worked well with the R72 filter.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II @ 30mm
Filters: 0.42x fisheye filter (fisheye mode), Near-infrared (580nm)
Exposure: 0.3" @ f/4, ISO 1600 ((M) + internal flash)
- Curves: darks -30
- Recovery +100, fill light +20, clarity +100, saturation -20
- Noise reduction: luminance +55
- Graduated filter in the top left of the picture: exposure +1.75 stops to lighten the building that sits just on the edge and would otherwise fall into obscurity, and a sandstone coloured tint to bring the colours in to line with the rest of the shot.
- (Tried a colour channel flip in The GIMP but it didn't look great)
The wash-up:Variations on this theme were all I took today. I spend a lot of time trying to get it right.
