Two men practicing tai chi along the South Bank of the Brisbane River, with Brisbane CBD buildings in the background.


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

The Setup:

Similar to a shot I took for my 365 project. Riding along the river at Southbank, stopped to snap this. Challenge was to take something with rather mediocre colours and make something out of it.

Exposure: 1/450" @ f/7.1, ISO 100 (0/100)

Post processing:

Lightroom 5 -

  2. Curves: Lights +15, darks -10, shadows -40
