Palm Beach, Gold Coast
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

I ran past this house while running in the rain. This was the third attempt (first attempt: iPhone through snap-lock bag - blurry; second attempt: at night, nowhere near enough light to focus with).

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 650D
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS @ 50mm
Exposure: 1/400" @ f/5, ISO 100 (0/1)

Post processing:

Lightroom 4 -

  1. Preset: B&W Look 5, which uses desaturation to get a B&W image, with shadow levels -15, temp +60 and tint +25.
  2. Presence: Exposure +0.6 stops, highlights +15, shadows +55
  3. Graduated filter from top of thongs upward: Exposure -1 stop, clarity +100
  4. Graduated filter from bottom of thongs downward: Exposure -2 stops, clarity +100 (both of above to gradually darken the areas that were not thongs)
