Ipswich Showgrounds
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

These guys were doing some bike stunts on a truck. No polariser with me today so the sky suffered.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 650D
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS @ 67mm
Exposure: 1/400" @ f/5.6, ISO 100 (0/1)

Post processing:

Lightroom 4 -

  1. Crop
  2. Clarity +25, saturation +20
  3. Blue luminance -50 (to darken the washed out sky)
  4. Red luminance +20 (to lighten/desaturate the red banners on the right)
  5. Spot removal to take out a bird
