Two sunrises over Corio Bay.

Late August….


…and mid September.

Just enough wind to ruffle the water..


A Photo a Week Challenge: Sun-Water




These days it is seldom I post edit

my photos a great deal.Last Friday morning I again ventured out for that elusive sunrise.

Alas!  Nothing spectacular.

Above is Straight Out Of Camera.

Adjust lighting a little, boost saturation,

straighten horizon and crop.

Often I Photoshop seagulls out of an image

as they are often a blur when using a slow shutter.

I have also noticed the tanker is just emerging from the sun.

I was more enthusiastic four years ago however…

Above is the edited version….

And this is the original.



These rubbish bins and car were annoying me

so the cloning brush removed them.



One bin and car gone, one bin to go.


No bins…no car.

Those with more Photoshop skills than I ever

hope to possess will notice blemishes in the editing

however when we zoom out to the ‘big picture’

they are even harder to see.



The final piece of editing was to remove

this car to a ‘not noticeable’ degree.

A simple crop fixed this.


Observant readers may have noticed…

…the elephant in the image.

The light tower.


I think it is a better looking photo

without the light tower.

This is Kardinia Park,

home to the

Geelong Football Club



Weekly Prompt Photo Challenge:  Edit



During my lifetime I have heard stories of

my paternal Grandmother’s brother

developing his photos some 70 or 80 years ago. 

I often wonder if my love of,

perhaps not very good, photography

came through the gene pool

or just happened.

Looking back towards Geelong City.

Too cloudy for a decent sunrise on Friday.

Swing around 180 degrees and we are looking

at North Shore where cargo vessels dock

and take on their loads at

the furthermost lights to the right.

Two peaks just visible are the You Yangs.


Fandango’s One Word Challenge:  Inherit




Some of my favourite closeups, or crops..

Whilst there is more here than

the challenge requires

‘Percy’ still makes a good subject.

Percy again

Probably my best ‘less is more’ photo.

Botswana’s Makgadikgadi Salt Pans

in the background

and very little else.



Lunch is down there.

Near Barwon Heads last Friday morning, April 26.


Saint Kilda Pier.

Crop some of the distraction and more focus

is on photographer and model,

completing a tertiary photography assignment.
