Today is Saturday, and I usually do a photo from the school, but I started processing the photos from Point Lonsdale and well, I couldn’t stop. I really like some of the images and if you don’t mind, I would like to show some more. Hopefully, I will have the school photo for you tomorrow.
The lighthouse with the jetty in front and the rocks. I was a little disappointed that the sunrise wasn’t great, but the clouds were wonderful and maybe that is going to become my thing, moody landscapes, I do like them.
I moved further away from the jetty for this shot, and included the rocks to give it more of a story. I have also tried to process it much the same way as I did the others, and I hope it does look softer. I like that softness, almost dreamy. I did something else and you might have noticed already, but I found the images quite cold, so I added a photo filter of orange, and then toned it down. I just wanted to warm the image up a little, but not make it to unnatural.
This was one of the first shots that I took when I got down there. You can see that there is almost no colour in the sunrise. I have processed all these images as HDR images, and while I was doing it I upped the saturation levels to try and bring out as much of the colour as I could. I don’t know how successful I was, but it does stand out a little. I love the jetty, it is so nice, and I can’t wait to see it when they have finished working on it.
This was taken on the other side. You can should be able to see a ship in the distance heading towards the docks at Melbourne. It is right at the end of the jetty. Except for the previous shot, all these images were taken with a neutral density filter. I wanted to try and slow the water down a little.
The last image for today, the jetty again, more colour in the sky and the rocks in the foreground. They are the same rocks that were in the first image. Again, the photo filter was used to warm it up and hopefully, as with all the images, they are softer.
I had so much fun taking the images, and I would really like to go back some time and explore it more. It isn’t that far away, that it really is possible to do it. Though, I would never do it before going and photographing a cycling event all day.
The images from Barwon Heads are great, well I like them, but you might have to wait for those. I have so many images I want to show right now, and there just aren’t enough days. I have a great stock of images right now.
Have been thinking about putting some of these on my website, people have really liked looking at them, so have wondered if others would be interested in purchasing some. So if you are looking for something for your wall go to www.leannecole.com.au
