Roma Street Parklands, Brisbane
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

This is similar to the last photo, but much closer to the action. Because of the spray from the water hitting the ground, many of the photos did not work out. I also had to keep moving the camera to dry it out, which mucked up the composition (can't compose easily with an R72 filter on the front - it's point and guess).

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II @ 18mm
Filters: 0.42x fisheye filter (fisheye mode), Near-infrared (580nm)
Exposure: 1.6" @ f/3.5, ISO 1600

Post processing:

I spend a long time trying to find some good looking settings for this photo. I then gave up and tried all of my presets and found a good one there. Lightroom -

  1. Apply redrex-aged preset for Lightroom

The wash-up:

This one came out okay, but other ones like it suffered from being too close to the ground - due to spray from the waterfall. I was using the mini tripod - the full tripod would have helped avoid the spray.
