Brisbane from Kangaroo Point (experimental)

So, just for a lark, I've tried something quite different with this shot. It's four exposures blended on top of each other using a couple of different blend modes in order to get a very punchy and saturated look. Not my usual faire but it's sometimes nice to go for punchy.

    Anything different with a Kangaroo Point shot is a good thing.

    Punchy indeed... I do find myself being drawn in by the green a lot.

    [] Indeed, it's difficult to find something that hasn't already been done to death there.
    [] Quite so, and the "electric" grass.

    I like it Dave, a new perspective.

    [] I'd brought two lenses with me only, the 17mm Tilt-shift and the 85/1.2L. The 85 was too long, and the 17 too wide, so I borrowed Jeff's 1.4x extender and brought the 17 down to 23mm. The sky was very clear by then and quite uninteresting, so I concentrated on the foreground and thus we have this image :)

    I like it Dave. Picked up a 24mm TS-E MkII myself just recently, but haven't had a chance to really test it out. Was considering a going to KP cliffs Saturday evening, but dinner went a bit too late ... not that I would have got your result!

    Nice one Dave - the grass looks like that stuff made out of optic fiber
  • David de Groot said:
    [] Oh sweet! The big advantage of the TS-E 24 is it can take filters (the 17 has a bulbous front element as I'm sure you're aware). Given I had the 1.4x on the 17, this is about the field of view you'd get with the 24 anyway.
    [] Thanks!
    [] Which, as I'm sure you're aware, is quite an achievement ;-)
    [] Danke!
    [] It does, doesn't it ? They've changed the cliff lights from the awful sodium vapour ones to something else and thus the glow on the grass.

    Classic spot needs something a little different from time to time. But i like this one as well.
  • David de Groot said:
    [] Sure does. 'tis far too easy to take the same shot from there.
