Shot of the Day #78

The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology prides itself in design excellence and with first-hand experience I can say I am proud of my university – especially when it comes to the state-of-the-art buildings springing up around campus. The abstract photograph below was taken of the new SAB Building 80 located on Swanston street in Melbourne, which opened just under a year ago. Only now have I finally got around to photographing it, and there is so much more to ‘expose’. Anyway, the photo before your eyes is somewhat non-descriptive of the building, yet in a way shows you just how unique it is and why it has become a landmark on RMIT’s campus. Having shot in raw, I was able to pull much of the detail lost in the sky out and really uncover the rich colours of the buildings ‘spiky’ exterior. I think the ‘before & after’ screenshot might be interesting to those adamant about their jpegs!
