    Hi Guys ... I dont know how many of you guys know about Great Ocean Road In Victorian State of Australia.Its one of the most spectacular coastal line in the world and stretcted around 400 km. Its famous for 12 Apostles . We just drove there on Wednesday and came back on Friday , though it was quite windy and rainly weather but still I manage to shoot few pics .These are shot with EPL2 with 14-42 mm kit lens except few images which were shot with Panny 14-42 mm. I wished If I had Panny 7-14 mm .Australia is a wonderful place and I invite all of you to come and visit us.
    Please feel free to comment .
    Cheers

    I do agree that stretch of coastline is spectacular and opens up a host of photo ops.

    As for the photos, for me, they're too saturated and unrealistic. maybe that's the look you were going for, but doesn't do it for me.

    and i get the feeling that maybe the shots were a bit under-exposed and so you had corrected too much to get some detail visible in the foreground, which resulted in blowing out the highlights.

    I used only Kit lens and was forced to do some correction .I forgot to shoot RAW actually .

  4. Looks like a wonderful part of the country. I'd certainly love to drive and photograph the Great Ocean Road one day. There are some great shots in your set, but I would consider doing some processing on them, even if just to straighten up a few of the horizons. You're obviously a big fan of saturation :smile:

    Mind me, but where is the actual road? The pics are taken from the coast at Port Campbell, Great Ocean Road stretches for quite a long distance and it's sinuous. Worth it to be made through on the bike or a convertible :)

    You got a number of very fine photos. A few are a bit heavily saturated but others are excellent. Looks like a photographers paradise!

    Another set of photos from "down under" that make me want to travel to the opposite side of the globe. Very nice, thank you.
