True North Trip 13
Markie has been pulling out some more Kimberley trip gems so not to be outdone I thought this was a great travel shot taken on an island with huge sandstone sculptures. The model was one of the passengers who was French, I know as much French as Tom Putt knows hard work! She was a natural!

This one was two images worked initially in Photomatix and then tweaked in Photoshop. Now the problem is I am just pushing sliders around trying to make it look cool but not really knowing what I am doing. I will try to understand the process a little better as I get time. This is a shot from way back, just waiting for the right time to be bought to life. Now the secret to good hdr images I think is fixing all the problems with them after in photoshop. What Photomatix does is give you a good base image to work with, from there the images can go in any direction. It’s all about knowing what direction that is! Hopefully not backwards. I think where people are having problems is leaving the images straight out of Photomatix and not doing more work in Photoshop to stylize them. Still this look is what I have wanted to find for ever. Now everything I look at I wonder how it would look Tone Mapped.

There are so many little islands all around here. It is fantastic as the waters are alive. We saw about 20 sharks in the shallows chasing Turtles around, huge schools of fish feeding, whales and heaps of eagle rays in large groups. This morning we drifted over coral reef and visited several sandy islands. This place has it all.

Hi all. This is my first foray into the blogging world. Will probably have everyone tune out after the first read. Hopefully if all goes well you will be able to follow my tracks and get some info on what, when and how I am shooting. Have lots of info and tips to offer the enthusiastic photographer in everyone. Till next time.
