Alice Springs was named after the waterhole ‘Alice Spring’ that was named after the wife of Sir Charles Todd (the Postmaster – as the town was originally a Telegraph Station). This photograph is a stitched panorama of two images – my polariser was able emphasise the reflections on the waters surface and create a more vibrant look to the overall photo.
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.
Northern Territory is ‘Outback Australia’ – as their number plates say :) The Northern Territory Flag consists of the Southern Cross, the Sturt’s Desert Rose and the red/orange colour of the Land (Ochre). This photograph was taken at Anzac Hill in Alice Springs looking directly up at the flagpole and with the use of my polariser I made the sky almost black – contrasting the colours of the flag. I made some small adjustments with the techniques used in my tutorial: https://www.scottphotographics.com/how-to-make-a-photograph-lomographic-in-gimp!
