Sculpture by the Sea

Hi guys,

Our family went down to Bondi today to do the Scuplture by the Sea walk (more info here: ).

I made the most of the opportunity to take photos, with my image folder size coming in at a grand total of 1.4GB. I am pleased with how most of them turned out, considering the harsh lighting conditions (the sun was reflecting quite harshly off the metal of the sculptures). The positive side to this is that I was able to keep my shutter speed very high (fast), which made it much easier to get crisp shots.

See my favorites below (I know, there are so many... Favourites are sooo hard to pick):

I love freezing objects that are usually to hard to follow with the human eye. Using a fast shutter speed, I was able to do this with a wave at Bondi Beach.

Post-processing in photoshop really made this photograph pop. I love the geometric structure looking of the serene nature of sand and ocean.

A shot that really captured the colourful nature of this sculpture.

I think the shallow depth of field really enhanced this photo. I love the colourful look in the sculptures eyes.

Using a fast shutter speed, I freezed the motion of these flags waving in the wind.

A macro shot of a flower.


I took this photo of a post that was part of a sculpture. In photoshop I then desaturated the unfocused parts to create a cool effect.

 A fairly straight shot of a sculpture.


Sorry for the amount of photos, but there was so much to take photos of, I couldnt help myself!

Have a great day :)

Wowsers Jacob - these are excellent! - I love your post production image of the bronze sculpture. And the one of the coloured (?) glass with the desaturated background, but they are all fantastic - I love to see how you see something through the camera and can make a picture sing when you are finished editing it.

Thanks a lot mum :)

The desaturated one was actually the green playing blocks, taking down low with only half the block in view.
