Shot of the Day #65

Sorting through the remains of the photographs I took on my Red Centre Trip – I found three photographs unstitched. This photo stitch is of the remarkable Kata Tjuta/Olgas sandstone formations, located not far from the younger rock Uluru/Ayers Rock. Using my polariser I partially picked up some of the detail in the reflections, and then later in Photoshop uncovered the shadows with adjustment layers and layer masking (screenshot below).

The sky in the Outback is always a rich deep blue and the sunsets are just as stunning – The black silhouettes of the harsh outback lands and a painterly mirage of clouds backlit by the falling Sun. There was a slight breeze while I was photographing the sunset and I had in mind that I would want to later lift the vibrant colours of the clouds in Camera Raw with an HDR effect, so instead of the three+ exposures I opted for raw. The screenshot below shows my adjustments in Camera Raw!

Panoramas are an excellent way to really capture the true Central Australia, because it offers the wide angle view that a person would experience there. Kings Canyon is perfectly lit at sunset where the cliff walls reflect warm reds and oranges, and make a fringe around the valley river bed. The panorama consists of ten photographs covering greater than 180°degrees.

Shot of the Day #60

Dingoes are famous in the Outback, not just for the accusations that have been made in the past, but as I found out at night when they sometimes congregate together and howl! This was taken near the Uluru Cultural Centre and where he was just wandering around, maybe scavenging for scraps and wasn’t looking to harm anyone passing by just a couple metres away – nothing made out from stories or movies!

I’ve dug this photograph up from my trip to France last September this time with the use of Photoshop Camera Raw I attempted to better the post-processing. This is the Chapel of Saint-Hubert, which is within the walls of Château d’Amboise and where Leonardo Da Vinci is buried.
