I made the above image at Moonlight Head on Victoria’s Great Ocean Road. The use of a panoramic camera, such as the Hasselblad X-PAN II camera, is usually isolated to more distant landscapes. But by moving in closer the panoramic format allows the photographer to monumentalize a specific detail within the larger landscape.

I love the pearlescent appearance of the near white details lying on the rock surface. The original color transparency was scanned and then processed in Adobe Camera RAW, prior to employing Adobe Photoshop CS4 for local tonal distribution and the application of a subtle warm/cool split tone.
