The climb to the top of Uluru is well worth the effort – the panoramic view is amazing and the thought that your in the middle of Australia! This photograph is a panorama stitch of fifteen photos, and as you can see a polariser has made the colours very rich, however the dark spots in the sky are a result of the maximum polarisation being 90º Degrees to the sun.

A Road Train parked outside a petrol station in the middle of ‘nowhere’ or as the locals like to put it ‘the middle of everywhere‘! The Northern Territory, South Australia and simply the Outback is famous for the three trailer long trucks that cruse along the highways at speeds of up to 130 km/h carrying fresh goods from town to town. The best thing about this roadside station was the five dollar ‘Pig Dog Rolls’ a light, greasy, nutritious snack filled with a sausage wrapped in a slice of bacon and a crispy pastry to hold it all together :P !

Out on the Stuart Highway you rarely see wildlife during the day, but occasionally there is road kill which has occurred after dusk as the fauna becomes more active. Unfortunately I came across a poor Roo (Kangaroo) and two Wedge-Tail Eagles that were scavenging over the remains, I was pretty lucky to get this close to one of them (the other flew away) with my 200mm Lens I managed to capture the largest bird of prey of Australia!

Kings Canyon was beautiful – I made it there at around sunset, greeted by the 270m sandstone chasms – brilliantly lit up by the dropping sun, which produced a golden fringe around the canyon forest. Heading back from the main lookout I side tracked into the river bed a little and this pool of water was perfectly placed for me to capture the reflections and canyon walls! I had to do a free-hand panorama to include both the reflections and orange sandstone, I later stitched the nineteen photographs together in Photoshop, creating this vertical panorama!

Creating Light Leaks on Photographs using GIMP


Notice: Undefined variable: read_more in /home/scottp12/public_html/wp-content/themes/traction/archive.php on line 34

Light Leaks are a product of film in the camera being exposed due to a hole/gap in the cameras body letting in light. It is sometimes used aesthetically in photographs creating a sense of vividness or soft blurs of colour – usually red. In this tutorial I’ll show you how to create these light leaks in the GIMP!
