Tag: Federation Square

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.

Yesterday I posted a blog post on my other site showing some images from my venture in the city of Melbourne the other day. It is my intention to continue working on a few images for this post. Ones that I do a lot more processing too. It is nice to have this blog to show my fine art photos more.

One of the really nice things about Federation Square is how it looks when it is wet. I love how the sandstone goes a beautiful golden and pink colour. It is such a textured and patterned place. These steps are around the back, sort of, near the river. I haven’t really taken many photos around there, but I must make sure I change that. When I processed this image I really wanted to emphasize the steps and the colours of them.  There was someone sitting up the top but I decided to get rid of them.

It has lots of arches and pylons. I think the long exposure of the water helps to highlight that steel. The water almost disappears. When I processed it I concentrated on the steel structure.

southbank-river-longexposure-clouds-nightI like the clouds in this one, but out of the three I think this is the weakest. There are too many things in it that I don’t really like. The clouds were moving very fast so it was easy to get the movement in a 30 second exposure. I think the whole image is too glitzy for what I usually look for. I really dislike the lights on the bridge as well. It is a scene I must go back to again, maybe after Christmas.

The trip into the city really was great and I still have a lot more photos to process, if I choose to. I am really enjoying exploring architecture again. I think I have missed it. I’m looking forward to seeing where my work goes in the future.
