This is my take on the view overlooking Lake Ballard. I have come up with a new technique for adding a tone and contrast at the same time and it is completely editable so it is easy to fine tune. This tone can bring an image to life. Again I have a very light sky as opposed to the heavy dark ones. I like it for a change. This pic is almost 3 metres wide at full res. Another one I did with the gigapan is just under 5 metres wide at full res. That is big!
This image would do well in the Landscape 500 Photo Competition. Enter here.

Salt Lake, Rottnest Island
Just got home from an awesome weekend at Rotto on Truenorthmarks 43ft boat. No not his 50M boat, this one is a wee bit smaller and just as much fun. Still feel I am on the water though and am rocking in my chair. We were there with Marks wife and their two friends. Also our special guest was the man himself, Les Walkling. We had a great time talking art and photography and I was inspired once again to push the limits of my work. Thanks guys for a very memorable Easter.
This pic is of one of the salt lakes in the middle of Rottnest Island. We took a ride out to the guns and the lighthouse before returning to the boat for easter lunch. I’m going on a diet, we ate like kings with Crayfish and Blue Groper on the menu as well as this wicked carrot cake that must have been bad it tasted so good. I like this shot even though it isn’t a pretty beach or row of deciduous trees in autumn. There is something about salt lakes.
Shot this with the p65 and 45mm phase lens. Blisteringly sharp! I’m very impressed with the Phase One.
