Challenge: Perspective V (Advanced Editing V)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM for Nikon
Location: Melbourne Australia
Date: Dec 18, 2007
Aperture: F11
ISO: 200
Shutter: 4.5 seconds
Galleries: Cityscape, Landscape
Date Uploaded: Dec 18, 2007

THE IMAGE: Once again at the Rialto Observation deck. The 10-20mm Sigma is perfect for skewed perspective. I love the lighting in this, about 40 minutes after sunset. This was another hand held image, shot be leaning the camera on the outdoor fence and taking a deep, deep breathe! It's a 4.5 second image!

THE EDIT: basic stuff: USM, Levels, Contrast, some dodge and burn to bring out some of the buildings. I like how it has an almost 3D effect.

PREDICTION: High hopes...but I am sure there will be many clever images. Perhaps 6.7???

You have a most awesome grip on editing. Here it seems like you didn't do too much but that's why its great - knowing the limits. I've found that for myself stopping before that boundary is difficult, excellent stuff

Wow, that was a good guess! Should have guessed it'd be you too, hotpasta. Congratulations on another high finish!

EDIT: Just noticed that bit about the shutter speed and the hand held! Wow that's impressive!!!

You are pretty good at predictions... Figured it might be yours. With your steady hands, maybe you should moonlight as a surgeon. :)
