It was cloudy last Saturday and today is a cloudy Sunday. I have been so happy with the photos I got on that Saturday and it has been fantastic to share them all with you. I have a very busy week coming up, the UCI World Track Championships are in Melbourne and I will be taking photos at them. I might have to share some. I will be in among the best track riders in the world, all hoping to prove themselves for the coming Olympic Games. I hope you don’t mind if I share them with you.
But not today.
You must remember this arcade, it is the Block, it is one I have shown on many occasions. I tried putting the camera down at ground level and took this image. I really like the way you can see all the way to the end. The colours are warm and inviting. The people are there, but they aren’t dominant and blend into the image. I was really happy with this image. Changing your perspective can be a great thing at times.
This image, and the next are both HDRs processed using Photomatix and then post edited in Photoshop CS5.
This image is at the other end of the Arcade, basically looking towards where the other one was taken. This part of the arcade is straighter, but I like the iron work and that light that it is holding. Did you notice it? I should probably play with it more, so that the light stands out a lot more. I am probably the only one that sees it.
This image was also done the same way.
Daylight savings finished today. We got to sleep in an extra hour. It also means that I won’t have to get up so early to see the sunrise, or stay up later to see the sunset. I am starting to wonder if the Australian Winter is going to be a really good time to take photos. I am certainly willing to test out my hypothesis.
