Shot of the Day #61

Marysville was buzzing yesterday lunchtime with all the day-trippers buying lunch at the famous Marysville Bakery! This photograph was taken lying down looking up, in between the tall two Gum Trees. Using Camera Raw in Photoshop I was able to uncover some of the detail in the shadows, especially right in the foreground.

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!

Shot of the Day #59

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.

Shot of the Day #58

This is one of my favourite panoramas of the trip, because it includes everything about the desert outback of Australia. I woke up early to make it to the Olgas lookout, unfortunately not as early as the campers that had taken the prime position on the corner, but I managed to get this wide angle panorama of The Olgas/Kata Tjuta to the left and Ayers Rock/Uluru very faint on the horizon to the right of the Sun. I uncovered some of the detail in the shadows with Camera Raw Photoshop and stitched the fifteen photographs in jpeg format – my computer couldn’t handle the huge raw files of 206mb!
