Great Royaldevon 2015-12-08 1:33

Hello Mike,

I wondered when you might show us your views of Australia.

This is a very strong, imposing photograph.
The b&w stops any distractions, it becomes almost hypnotic in its harsh attraction.
The rocks and the pier are textured and bold, standing so firmly against the sea which has been blurred to insignificance. Is it symbolic of man against nature?

It is a most engaging photograph.

Have a great day,
Bev :-)

Default To Royaldevon: Photographer vs Nature

Well Bev

I like your take on it, though it wasn't in my mind consciously at the time. However, now I reflect, perhaps it was about photographer against nature. It was a grey overcast day and the light was poor. We had stopped in Lorne and I struggled to get a decent photo all day. This was my last ditch attempt before we drove off in the car and called it a day. The only way I could get this to work was to take a spot metering off the underside of the pier and then fix tripod etc and overexpose by one stop, two stops and three stops. This was the two stop result with a little dodging and burning thrown in for good measure. So it seems photographer with technology defeated nature!

Have a good day, best wishes and say Hi to Len.
