A Bit Before
The other night when I went to take photos under the Westgate Bridge, I took lots. Of course, the ones I showed you the other night were the best, but I have a few more to show you now.
This is a HDR image, processed with HDR Efex with 5 images. These are also the first five shots I took when I got there. It was also the only time I got the sun shining on the bridge like this.
Some of the best views of Melbourne can be seen from on top of that bridge, but there is no way you can take photos from it unless you do it from a moving car. They built this great big high bridge, but you can’t walk over it to look at the city. It is such a waste.
This is the same place as the last photo in Sunday’s post. This image is also a 5 image HDR image processed with HDR Efex. It is good to use it and see what can be done with it. I did as Another Thousand Words suggested and upped the contrast and that has helped a lot.
This is the front of the ship that I showed on Sunday. It is heading out. I had to do this as a single image. The ship was moving way too fast to do a HDR and when I tried it the ship had too much ghosting. This worked out a lot better, though I lost a lot of detail in the bridge.
The sun set, just before it turned the sky on fire. It was great to watch it unfolding.
I am heading into the city tonight, hopefully will get some photos. I need to see what the city is going to be like for Christmas. I would like to go back in and get some night shots. I am hoping some of you will join me. We will have to make a time and date, well, the time will need to be about 8 o’clock at night. Let me know if you are interested.
I have been nominated for some more awards by some wonderful people.
Thank you to all three, it is very much appreciated, and I hope everyone else will visit their blogs.
