Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Upside Down III (Basic Editing)
Camera: Nikon D300
Lens: Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II
Location: Royal Botanical Gardens, Melbourne, Australia
Date: Oct 15, 2008
Aperture: F4.5
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/640
Galleries: Cityscape, Water
Date Uploaded: Oct 14, 2008

The Image: Taken at our Botanical Gardens the morning of the deadline. I tried doing this image as a nightime long exposure, but movement in the water made it difficult to make out detail. The sun came out for me after some overcast mornings, so I took my opportunity.

The Edit: Rotate 180 degrees, Smart Sharpen, Levels, Colour Balance, Neat Image DPC moved to 720 pixels! I hate the puny 640 pixel size on shots like this. Come on guys, it's time!

The Prediction: Not sure...haven't been that good at guessing these days...hope for a 6 plus

Enzo, you gave this beautiful shot the perfect title. I can't believe it only scored a 5.8...

I thought Monet when I looked at this first, looks fab. The colours are great.

This is quite nice but the line at the bottom of the image is a bit distracting.

Lovely colour in the sky reflection though.

has an impressionist feel reminiscent of Monet's 'water lilies' with a modern twist. I love the composition and the colors and the feel, 10 + fave hope you win!
