Bunker Bay, Night & Day

Heres a couple more shots that i took last weekend while i was down in Dunsborough. It’s actually more like dawn and day.


This is a six or seven image stitch from Bunker Bay. The clouds were doing cool things where certain areas were turning pinkish, while others were almost blue. With out a pano head yet you can only imagine the stitching problems!


This shot was also taken at Bunker Bay, and I think turned out quite nice. It’s a six image stitch. I had some slight noise issues in the sky and was sure of the best way to deal with it, since i don’t have Noise Ninja. So i just selected the sky area and gave it a very very small motion blur, which seemed to help, and I made sure to make separate layers to keep the land parts of the shot nice and sharp.

  3. Hey Dylan,
    Nice work looks liek you got a lot from Christian’s course, I also saw your post on Christian’s blog about the day time shot and yea your clouds are a bit blowen out but nothing a good ND filter wouldnt fix or even masking back in the blowen highlights with the original layer. But you got nice blues in the sky which is nice to see. My only advice on that one would be, it would be nice to see more of the beach on the right.

    If you shoot with graduated ND’s a trick I always use is underexposing the sky by a stop so if you only need a 1 stop adjustment use a two. Sure you can do it in photoshop but its all about best original capture to work with.

    Thanks Matt,

    I have a grad filter but it isn’t for the lens i was using.
    a few of my pics will need a little work once i get my screen properly calibrated. It’s pretty close at the moment.
    thanks for the tip. It’s always great to hear and learn from the pro’s!

    actually the original did have more beach to the right, but when it was cropped, it would have thrown out the composition, a few things would have ended up pretty centered.
