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

Yearly Progress

Well I havent had any photos to process lately and then i came across my first ever shot of Sugarloaf. This is the third time this image has been processed and again it is different to its previous versions. It is interesting to look at the three images and see how my photography has changed and improved.

This time around I may have copied some ideas from none other than Eastway. In fact this image is my attempt at getting a similar affect to that of his award winning image of Sugarloaf. I do have the magazine which he showed the steps he took to get his image, but i couldnt find it so i did it on me own, and am very pleased with the result.

  2. Great job of the PS’ing. Looks great. Is that a couple guys standing on the rocks down the bottom 3/4 of the way to the right? I really like this image. Excellent.

    Funny thing is Eastway’s photo has a man in it too! But he photoshopped him in! πŸ˜‰

  4. Nice work Dylan. You even have the figure/figures in the shot. Pretty coincidental. Your figures are legit though.
    I wonder what Master Eastway would think if he stumbled across this. He’d have to be impressed.

  9. Killer image, mate. The processing is top notch. If Clint gets back in time he said the three of us should head down there. Would be cool!
