Pic of the Week_Dusk_Eagle Rock_Great Ocean Road

Canon 5D camera and Canon 24mm f1.4 L series lens

The Great Ocean Road is one of the world’s most beautiful drives. Spectacular ocean views, tranquil rainforests and beautiful waterfalls await the intrepid traveller.  I’ve been fortunate enough to spend quite a lot of time photographing along the GOR, producing an A3 plus size calendar in 2003 and a large range of postcard and greeting cards over the following two years.

The above image features Eagle Rock under a brooding sky at dusk. Made from the observation site at Split Point Lighthouse, in Aireys Inlet, I remember feeling that I’d made a portfolio standard image the moment the camera’s shutter was released. A warm tone black-and-white rendering was all that was needed to evoke the sense of stillness I experienced when tripping the shutter.

Adobe Lightroom 2 and Adobe Photoshop CS4 were employed to produce the rich, velvet-like tones evident in the final image.
