Perth Awakening

I had the great pleasure of catching up with Kirk on Saturday morning at Kings Park, we’d made a last minute decision the night before to head up there and see what we came up with.   I must admit after picking away at this photo for ages, I’m finally warming up to it, as people say, we are our own worst critics.  This was a five image stich taken with the 1Ds MkIII.  I’m pretty impressed with the resolution, in the full size image I can actually zoom in on the photo and see a person in one of the offices!!!   It doesn’t get much better than that.

    managed to capture a nice sunrise there jamie, although the building are a little dark maybe a layer mask to bring that detail out a little more?

    Hi Neal,

    Yeah I was just being slack and ‘put it out there’ as is. I will be working on it a little more through the week.

    Nice shot Jamie ,cant wait to see the finished editing .
    Yeah a layers mask on the building to brighten them up would work a treat on this .
    Yeah I just love the resolution you can get with multiplue stitch images , I can just imagane the resoultion with yours at full frame and 20+ megapixels per shot .
    Thanks for making me wake up for sunrise .

    Nice work, Jamie. Looks good but agree with the others, still needs a bit more work. Maybe a little lightening up and slight colour boost.

    Last night I finally got to take the 5D out and shoot a sunset. I love it!

    Hi Kirk,

    Christian’s courses certainly are well worth the money aren’t they? No the light was pretty boring this weekend, you didn’t miss much at all. Where did you shoot down south?


  8. kirkhille May 11, 2008 at 5:21 pm #

    Yeah the course was deffiantly worth it , just have to put it to use now .
    There is so much to shoot down south and only had a couple of days 🙂
    Stopped off at Busselton Jetty on the way down there on Friday to get a shot of the jetty as i have yet to get one nice light expect the clouds had moved away from the jetty as the light got better .
    Then on Saturday morning went to sugarloaf , will hopefully have a pic from saturday morning posted tonight .Then at sunset went to yallingup beach and this morning stoped off at Castle Rock before I head back up to Perth .

    Yes I could easily spend two weeks down south just shooting away. Its the great thing about living in this state. 🙂

    Gorgeous shot! I would crop a bit of the bottom I think.

    Hi Flemming,

    Thanks for the great comment! I love the quality of your work. This photo will definitely get more work done to it when I get back from the Canning Stock Route.

    You’re on the Canning Stock Route? Wauv, can’t wait to see your shots! Always wanted to do that route, a mate of mine in Perth did it years ago in his OKA 4wd.

    Hi Flemming,

    I must admit I’ve not really been looking forward to going away. After spending six years in the Navy I really appreciate being at home. However, now that the trip is less than 48hrs away I’m as excited as hell. I’m hoping to capture lots of abandoned buildings, old mines, and towns along the way before actually getting to the CSR. I’ve now done plenty of research and found heaps of good spots that I can capture along the way. Just think of all the post processing!!!! LOL.
