Just back from a short trip to South Gippsland, mainly around Wilson's Prom (southern most point of mainland Australia)... I have processed a few shots and will get around to doing some more, I have lots of Panoramas to process.. Weather wasn't the best but we got a few breaks to squeeze some photography in...


This one is a three shot Pano.

There were a lot of dead crabs on the beach for some reason

and that is how it's done ;) great stuff joele!

i saw a lot of dead crabs whilst I was there too. (we referred to them as "wazza"...because they "was" a crab - terrible joke i know)

(p.s. was that all on your g2?)

Hey Kosta, thanks...

yes all shots on the G2...

Back to the question I asked you earlier, apparently you are supposed to get out by sunset, but there is no one actually there to police it.. I would suggest though driving slow if you do stay late, on the way out we had to stop for Kangaroos and Emus running across the road..

Did you also get the giant sand flies biting you on the beach? They were everywhere for us, the first day I retreated within minutes... When I came back for the sunset shots I smothered myself with Aeroguard, though they still found spots to bite me (like through clothes)...

fantastic!

I didn't know about the time period you were allowed and whether it was policed or not - but I did realise there would be a high chance of fauna on the roads! (in the area outside the prom there were so many on the side of the road :( )

no sand flies when i was there! phew they bite hard!
which lenses did you choose to take with you?

Great shots Joele! I have a dumb question though.... how did you make the border with your name on it? I'd like to make something similar for myself :smile:

Ohh yeah... :eek:

As I had the car I just packed everything in a bag and took the lot...

Also have a HDR processed, it is 7 shots blended (love the 7 shot bracketing on the g2).. HDR is pretty new to me and I tried to make it looks as 'non-HDR' as I could whilst still reaping the benefits of seeing the foreground but with a strong sky (sunset).. I think I may have made the foreground too dark, and high contrast?

The border is a photoshop script I purchased years ago (absolute Web 124), was pretty cheap and is nice a quick to apply.. I am not sure if he is still selling it, his site is still there maybe just email before buying as he hasn't updated it in years (still works though)..

Joel! Those are awesome shots! The 'crab' is my favorite, a sad image.. pictures that turn emotions are called.. art. :) Thumbs up ! Great work.
