Brisbane at Dusk

Taken at our workshop this evening.

Kane and I are really looking forward to seeing the results from our students as the images on the back of the cameras looked stunning.

    Wow Dave , the sky really adds to this shot.
    Love the green grass in the foreground too :-)
  • [ Kane ] said:
    Woot, you got the clouds... they looked awesome where we were. Yup, hoping to see some shots soon.
  • andrew katic said:
    looks great dave.the clouds look you use flurorescent white balance for this shot?
  • Adam Randell said:
    Awesome sky movement here David!! Love the light on the bridge & water!!
  • Tristen Murray said:
    The exposure is spot on. The clouds are fantastic
  • David de Groot said:
    [] We moved the group around to the other end of the park this time Kath. Those shooting at 18mm could then get the whole bridge in, and there's a park light near the shooting location that illuminates the foreground grass nicely. The clouds finally did something useful (having all but disappeared at sunset).
    [] Sure did - ended up shooting for about 2min 45sec to get enough movement though.
    [] Sure did Andrew. It's the best compromise for that scene. The oranges stay orange (not yellow like with Tungsten WB) and the sky goes bluer than with Daylight WB.
    [] Thanks Adam, was lucky. The clouds came and went and generally didn't do what we wanted, except for this 10 min period.

  • Dylan Toh said:
    congratulations on your maiden workshop guys! I'm sure all those around learned alot - the fanning of clouds over the bridge is cool
  • David de Groot said:
    [] Thanks Hang. This was down the other end of the park from where we shot (at the bottom). Should you return (with a friend), you will be able to get the whole bridge in with your lens from there.
    [] This was the second workshop Dylan, but thanks all the same :) The clouds were great, for the little time they hung around.

    Wonderful shot David ! I learn a lot just by looking at your streams ! I love the clouds on this one and the exposure is spot on, something which I dont get right with my dusk shots !

    [] [] [] [] [] [] [] [] [] [] [] [] [] [] [] Thanks Everyone!
    [] Thanks Matt, the clouds didn't hang around for long - pretty much got two shots off before they'd moved along.
    [] Saw the clouds and decided to break out the camera. :)
    [] Takes a bit of practice, trial and error, etc. We try to condense what we know in our workshops so that people can take it away with them and practice afterwards.
    [] Thanks Reedy, coming along fairly well at the moment.
    [] You're welcome Karen. I must say, your results from the workshop are stunning.
    [] Thanks Thea. Must get out for some more birding at some stage, it's been a while.

  • Bumblebee Photo said:
    Beautiful night shot! I love the pull of the clouds and the bright lights and colors!
  • David de Groot said:
    [] Thanks Sarah, I chose the long exposure precisely for the clouds to create some interesting leading lines in the sky. :)
    [] [] Thanks!
