Willow Versions

I’m not really sure if this is a Willow tree, but it does remind me of the Willow plates that I used to eat off as a child. I think the ones from those days have become collectable in their sets. Anyway the tree is in the wetland area, not far from my house. The area is constantly under threat for road construction. While I know growth is a necessity, it may  be sad to see the area go. In the mean time the houses are reasonably cheap around the wetland due to the RTA restrictions. I say reasonably, this is Sydney after all.

The above is photographed on my 5D, and processed in LR and photoshop. The first image is the colours of the eve, pretty much as they were.

 

When the sun sets

Friday 27/7/13, Sunset Botany Bay, With Micah. 1/125, f4 ISO100

Being out when the sun sets like this is always stunning, Botany Bay (even), is no exception.

On Thursday (at tech) we looked into photo merge. Between LR and photoshop you have some pretty smart programming. This is my first attempt, so there are areas to work on. I have about 50 images (joined) here, maybe I could of used less,maybe more in the outer corners, next time. Jim, (my teacher) recommended these tips:

1)Focus on your subject that you want focused, then turn to manual focus. 2) Take your image 3) move up and down your subject, either side to side , or up and down, taking images,MAKING SURE you overlap by 30%. 3) Import to LR, apply lens correction, white balance if needed 4) Resize your images ( or else it will take for ever in the alignment ) and open up in photoshop either through LR:photo, edit in, merge in LR as panorama, or import under Merge to Panorama which is somewhere in Photo shop, file,merge as panorama. 4) follow the pop upsThe program does the rest. Have fun.
