I’ve visited this location many times while running workshops in the Castlemaine area of Central Victoria. On my most recent visit I noticed how the reeds near the lake foreshore were illuminated with warm, soft light. I moved in close with a wide-angle lens to place extra emphasis on the reeds and contrast their warm color with the cool blue of the water and sky. The use of the wide-angle lens, the warm/cool color contrast and the definite foreground (reeds), midground (water) and background (hills and sky) has produced more of a 3 dimensional appearance to what would otherwise have been a relatively flat scene (water and sky).

Image processing was conducted in Adobe Lightroom 2 and Adobe Photoshop CS4.
