Southbank, Brisbane
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

This is for the get-pushed-41 challenge from @mbrunner: "to capture motion. could be traffic, people, sports, whatever moves. if this is too boring - an extra: 'motion with emotion'."

I went to a photowalk with Al, Mick and others, and this girl was part of the group. Emotion could be 'concentration', perhaps!

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 650D
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS @ 30mm
Exposure: 1/5" @ f/2.5, ISO 800 (ISO 800, manual exposure I think)

Post processing:

Lightroom 4 -

  1. Adjust white balance to Tungsten (I had flouro set manually in camera)
  2. Crop
  3. Clarity +50
  4. Sharpening (not that it helped - image was out of focus)
  5. Noise reduction: Luminance +50, detail +100

The wash-up:

Original image wasn't quite in focus or steady, but it was hand held at 1/5", so I'm giving myself an excuse.
