    An Evening At The Lake

    I went out to Lake Moogerah yesterday afternoon looking to catch a sunset there. As it turned out, the sky wasn't spectacular but the light was quite nice on the water. This shot took a fair bit of pp to get it OK, including the use of ColourEfex Pro filters (Detail Enhancer and Brilliance/Warmth).

    Details as follows
    SS 0.4 sec, f/11, ISO 100, 17mm, Manual focus
    5 portrait orientation shots stitched in CS6, some manipulation with Transform tool

    I used a 2 stop GND (hard grad) to balance up the exposure of the sky and water with the grassy foreshore. The grass might look a bit bright to some but I kinda liked it like that.

    Anyway, comments welcome as usual. And pls click on the image for full size viewing.

    And here's one for the birders ..
    Stumbled across a bird feeder at the lake with these two Rainbow Lorikeets. It was spur of the moment and I wasn't thinking clearly - I should have upped the ISO to get a faster shutter speed (from 1/30 sec) and the birds might have been a bit sharper.

    A good one, Dave. A very good one. A wonderfully balanced image with the two high hills 'book-ending' the frame beautifully.

    I really like everything about the landscape photo except the small amount of halos where the distant hills join the sky. Erasing the sharpening in those areas will easily take care of the situation.
