A Time to Reflect

Another from my early morning road trip to Brisbane City last week.


This was taken just after first light. Originally the wether report said beautiful cloudless skies. So the intent was to get the sunrise light bouncing off the front of the buildings. Didn't quite get that cloudless sky .......... :-)

Anyway, a new image developed. A long exposure panorama was perfect for the mood in the sky and in the way the low level clouds engulfed the city from the East. Still not a breeze, so perfect for those reflections.


This is a 6 frame (portrait mode) panorama. All 6 images are 2 min exposures, shot on the Nodal Ninja MKIII.

Stitched together in PS CS5.
