Finally getting the chance to get through some of back log of photos taken in Melbourne late in 2011. This photo of the Yarra River cutting in between Southbank and the bottom of the Melbourne CBD. This seven image stitched panorama was taken at the corner of the St Kilda Road Bridge on the CBD side with the very edge of the bridge visible in the left hand corner of the frame.
I really like the contrast created in this image with the storm approaching yet still some sunlight breaking through the cloud cover. I have processed this image using photoshop CS5 and Nik Viveza to make selective colour adjustments.
Quick photo straight out of the camera with very little editing in Adobe RAW apart from the conversion to black and white and slight contrast adjustments. Found the Melbourne markets fascinating and was very disappointed when i didn't get to discover the meat and fish produce sections. Highly recommend anyone touring Melbourne to check out these markets. They are located in the North West corner of the Melbourne CBD and are easily accessible by tram or on foot. I hope to post some more images before i leave for India.
This image of pocket watches on chains was taken on my Sigma 50mm at F1.4 at 1/40 Second. The shallow depth of fields works well to highlight the second watch face while bluring the remaining watches.
