"There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs." Ansel Adams

Rolling In

Well believe it or not, I got out today to take some LANDSCAPE photographs! I hadn’t shot any for about 2 or 3 weeks so i was great to back out. I went to Freo and then made my way towards the city. There were some pretty nice clouds around so i stopped by ‘the’ spot.

  3. Gee that looks somewhat familiar πŸ˜€ Great dramatic clouds and I like your motion blur as well, good shot. I would add a touch of duotone to make it just a bit warmer.

    Familiar to what…????
    Yeah I did add a warming filter to it. When the warming filter is added it goes through at 25% but I then lowered the actually layers opacity to 25% so I could bring it up a bit.

  8. Cheers Christian! Any time I shoot this place I am always after a different composition cause you always see the same two.
    I am loving this B&W at the moment too!!!
    Yeah I just had a look at your old shot from this spot mate and I think it’s fair to say its time for a re-shoot! Your photography has come a long way since then!

  13. Thats what I am afraid of Sean, that this shot may not be unique for long since its seems to have gotten the thumbs up!

    Well I’ve never seen that composition before. I like it! Most people just get the shed but you took it up a notch.

    Thanks Jamie!
    Im quite proud of this one! Maybe cause its a different composition….
    Gotta love having more than 5 or 10 minutes to shoot when you shooting b&w!

    People think landscape photographers just sit around relaxing watching sunsets and taking it easy. We know that for around 15mins we have to move quickly and accurately to get the best shot, no relaxing about it. You are so right about B&W you can really take your time and concentrate on the job in hand.

    Yeah mate it seems like with colour photography that when that window comes round, you think your ready and then you see a better composition and have to hustle to get set for it!
