Shot of the Day #27

Up in country Victoria a couple weeks back – just great to see all the gum trees ‘furry’ with leaves as they rejuvenate since the February ’09 Bushfires. I had the Canon 5D Mark II with me so I was testing all the features and the full frame is really sweet,  was about a metre away from this cottage chimney and was able to take a snap with minimal lens distortion! I thought black and white suited well, what do you think – original just below?

Photographing flowers with water-droplets is always a bit of fun, however I think I’ve got plenty of flower photos on my hard-drive :P Anyway the a point of this shot was an example for my quick tip about improving flower shots with water droplets!

Shot of the Day #24

Easter Egg Hunt! It’s Easter Sunday here, a day where Christians remember the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Also the day for Easter Egg Hunts. Nothing special about this photograph but rather the idea behind it and traditions associated with it :)

Power lines are often associated with negative connotations of how ugly and degrading they are to the natural landscapes, however I’ve attempted to represent them as a dynamical photogenic object by composing a wide angle and slightly distorted photo with the long electrical cables stretching past the frame.
