Brisbane City from Kangaroo Point Cliffs
Posted By: dosdan, 06-06-2008, 06:30 PM

I turned up at the KP cliffs to photograph the sunrise over the city - Saturday 7th Jun 08, 6:15 AM. But it was a rainy, overcast morning. Here are two shots. I had to boost the contrast in post. It was fairly bleak. Old domed building is the restored Brisbane Customs House.

Settings: K100D Super, ISO 400, F8, 1/10s, Mirror Lockup, Pentax-A 70-200/F4.

nice photo, the trail of the boat keeps the water from looking too plain.

I previewed using IMGWIDE before posting but I didn't like the quality of the resizing. For example: here's the 2nd image done that way. Look at the rightmost yacht of the group of yachts on the left-hand side. I thought the sloping "guy wires" (don't know the correct nautical term) looked rather jagged and poor quality, in both the IMGWIDE compact & expanded versions, when displayed in either IE & Firefox, whereas my resized version looked better to me:
