Here’s an older image from one of my favourite places, Apollo Bay on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria. The image was made at low tide and features some kelp that had been washed up on a rock ledge at high tide.

I utilised the Black and White Adjustment layer in Adobe Photoshop CS3 to convert the original color transparency into the black-and-white image featured in this post.

 I love the impact resulting from the high contrast treatment given to this image. I feel it conveys a more dramatic mood that better matches my intentions than what I was able to achieve with the original color transparency.
