Karlamilyi National Park
I have decided to head off in another direction to see where it takes me. I am always inspired by paintings done by the masters and have been trying to get that painterly feel for ages. I think this image has its place, possibly not in my gallery for sale but in my own private collection of work that interests me. Maybe they could be one offs, maybe they will get binned after a week. I might wake up tomorrow and wonder what the hell I was thinking. Still it is a path I must take and at the moment the exploration is pretty fun. My wife gave me the thumbs up on this one, I suspect Merv might give me a big NUP.
This was in the Karlamilyi national park and Les and I nicknamed it “Jurassic Park”. If only we had some aboriginals camped under a tree or a swagman to add to the feel of the image. I think the only thing moving around out there was Peter Eastway, if you look real hard you might see him. Talk about where’s Wally?

I am slowly getting my life back after some of the workshops and big jobs are finishing up. I have decided to go back to processing images from my trip to the Eastern States. This one of Magnetic Island was run through Photomatix 3.2 and ended up ok. I had some serious issues with some weird pixels in the highlights. Had to pull out all my photoshop tricks to put this one through to the next level. I used Noise Ninja, Gaussian blurs, motion blurs, lots of layer adjustments, mid tone contrast tricks the whole lot. Probably the hardest I have worked for a long time. Still some issues to sort out but that will have to be for another day.
Off to Port Hedland tomorrow to run a 2 day photoshop workshop. If it goes well I might do a similar workshop in Perth or some other exotic location.
Don’t forget the pizza night at Marks place on Friday the 6th. If you want to come you need to email him firstname.lastname@example.org. He has a special announcement to make you won’t want to miss. It may already be full, he will let you know.
