A quiet Cityscape

This image was taken a few weeks when I had a loan of the Canon 5D Mark IV with the 16-35mm 2.8 lens. I was trying it out for long exposure photography and while I had it I took as many as I could. I did process this image a little a couple of weeks ago to use for something else, then I realised I could still do a lot more to it. Here is the final image.

The other day I mentioned that I have a loan of the Canon 5D Mark IV and the 16-35mm 2.8 lens. I am trying them out with long exposures to see what I think. I am always on the look out for new gear to see what I can do with it, and, of course, I am looking around for a new camera to do long exposure photography with.

Often when people contact me for One on Ones Photography Lessons the area they want to photograph is along the river with the bridges. The Yarra River, that goes through the city, has many bridges going over it. While they aren’t massive big expanses like some bridges around the world, we do have some interesting ones. I thought it might be interesting to take a look at the bridges. I haven’t got photos of all of them, but I do have the interesting ones.

The bridges are as follows:

  • Bolte Bridge
  • Webb Bridge
  • Seafarers Bridge
  • Sandridge Bridge
  • Evan Walker Bridge
  • Princes Bridge

I have photographed them many times, so there are quite a few photos of each one.

I’m busy trying to finish everything off before I leave tomorrow. I hope you are having a good weekend.

The other night I spent the evening in the city walking around the lanes taking some night shots. It was nice to be back in the city talking photos.

The lanes are so different at night and they give you a much different look. Though all the people around the city gets a bit annoying. The city is such a busier place these days than it was a few years ago. We managed to get some shots. Oh yes, I was with a friend.

I’m just going to leave you with the images. I hope you are having a good weekend.

Last week I was doing some long exposures in the city and when I went to process one of them I converted it to black and white first. This is what I ended up with.

I decided to use this image for Monochrome Madness over on my other blog today. I like how it came out in monochrome.

As I usually do I converted it back to colour to see how it would look.

I lost some of the detail in the sky, but the blues in it are quite nice. It is going to be personal choice I think as to which one is better. I don’t think I have a preference.
