Challenge: Construction II (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS
Location: Adelaide, SA, Australia

Galleries: Cityscape, Sky
Date Uploaded: Jun 12, 2009

Early morning construction work here in Adelaide, my plan was actually to try and get some shots of the night workers finishing up, cranes moving in the early morning light etc etc. Got out of bed and it was cloudy........However by the time I walked up to the site, the clouds broke, the sun started to rise and ..... the rest is history as they say...

Stoked with score and with blue ribbon,,,,,,yay for me, my first, thought I was destined to be the bridesmaid forever. To those that asked, not it is NOT HDR, illegal in basic, this is how the sky looks here in winter ( yes it's winter down-under )....and thnx for all the cool comments.

We get skies like that here, especially in winter! It makes you appreciate it more when its not a year round, every day kind of thing. Good catch, beautiful pic!

Fantastic sky and silhouettes, but the crane being cut off at the top bothers me a bit
06/20/2009 08:06:18 PM
border a distraction. nice tonality.

Beautiful sky and I don't even mind that part of the one crane is cropped out.

Very nice... I know its a bit picky but I don't think the border works for the picture, I think it would have worked better if all the sides were equal. Still though...9!

Beautiful sky, but both the cranes are cut off at the tips. Might have worked better as a vertical?

Excellent capture, super focus and added bonus of a beautiful sunset/rise.

Fabulous sky. Must be HDR.
06/18/2009 03:43:25 PM
lovely sky, the black cranes against it work really well
06/18/2009 04:14:52 AM
Nice texture in the clouds. Good entry. Not a big fan of the border choice, however. Too thick for my taste.
06/17/2009 10:54:34 PM
if you don't get a ribbon, you'll be top ten.
06/17/2009 09:27:14 PM
Incredible sky. Great silhouettes. I'll be glad when this border style falls out of fashion.
06/17/2009 04:42:24 PM
Top 3.
06/17/2009 09:39:44 AM
Great timing! I like all of this except for the cutoff crane tops.
