Well its been a while since I put fingers to keyboard.  Thats christmas for you,  Always takes more time up than one thinks.


So what have I been doing.  Well like always learning and improving my photography.  So I thought I would share with you my recent fine art black and white image from Southbank in Melbourne. Happens to be one of my favourite buildings because it changes so much depending upon the viewing point.


This image is a long exposure about 6 minutes (produces the streaky cloud effect) and to get that sort of time one needs to add a few ND filters, in this case a ND 1000 and ND400 stacked.  Of course one needs to focus before adding the filters because there is nothing visible through the eyepiece or live view back.  A good sturdy tripod helps as well.


After that it is processing time and that can take quite some time, for this image its about 3-4 hours of subtle adjustments and layers to produce the image seen below.


Now if you are in Melbourne or visiting and want to spend some of your hard earned money in learning how to do this or if you love the image so much that you just want to own it then by all means contact me.  A comment will always attract my attention and we can go from there or follow the link to my web page and there you will find a contact point.
