Halls Gap (1 IMG) by Fa 43 ltd
Posted By: roentarre, 12-16-2008, 01:52 PM

This is an image when the sun managed to pop out a little above the clouds. A quick snap with f8 and it turns out nicely. No need for any PP at all

Great shot!
I love the contrast and those big clouds at the back over the mountains.

Nice one James, beautiful colour and just the right amount of detail in the darker areas.

A nice shot of an eerie place James....

....it's been quite a few years since I visited the Park. Did you explore the area around Zumsteins? Quite a lot of Aboriginal rock art up around there & an extremely spooky energy about it.

Cheers :->

Hi James,

Nice image and powerfully intense too. Love it! Though, I would consider cloning out the bush on the bottom.

That was a brief period where the sky cleared a little. The whole place was trapped with ghostly feel.

It is always a habit to have two cameras with me at all times...

In fact, I have recently discovered how Leica is capable of revealing shadow details. I am pretty amazed at this unique feature of leica lenses in general.

Fa 31 ltd can bring a degree of details in the shadows far more superior than canikon lenses but still no where near leica lenses.

Thanks for looking, Gary

Yes, my boots were soacked wet and clothes were all damp. Fa 31 ltd survived the storm pretty well even though it is not even water resistant...

k20d survived the weather well

Zumsteins is no man's land at the moment. Pretty quiet and the weather really made the place appearing haunted... I tried to like the place but ended up having a sandwich that resembled a dog's lunch. Though the cheese was very delicious in that bistro.

There were 5 aboriginal caves in the place but I could only visist one of the caves. The storm was too severe even to drive in the region...

Yes, I noticed that annoying in on the right lower corner. I am just getting too lazy these days

You can see that I hardly do any creative shots anymore. I prefer to travel and take snap shots. More fun that way

Thanks, Jimbo. It was simply a click and retreating into my cabin for some 5 hour DVD marathon...

Yes, more travelling this weekend again. Many places in Victoria are visited by me for more than 11 times or so But each visit always gives me a different set of images. Thanks to the fickle weather

That is Darren M's slogan too. He does street photography that one and I wished I could be like him one day
