CommentTaken with my Nikkor 500mm f4 lens using a tripod on a foggy and cold morning, just as the sun had risen, I thought I might ‘try and do’ something with this dawn image from the wetlands at Yanchep National Park. The duck is a Pacific Black Duck. Time of capture 07:44.
EquipmentNikon D850 with GPS mounted; 1/400sec at f5 set to ISO-250. 'CenterWeightedAverage' metering. Nikkor AF-S 500mm f4G ED VR lens Technique: Camera rig support: Gitzo GT3543XLS Tripod, Dietmar Nill gimbal tripod head; standing at shoreline.
Post Processing: Tif conversion and post processing was done in Photoshop. A slight crop was followed by sharpening of the mirrored image, then blurring the entire image horizontally across the centre, taking in the entire duck. Hereafter I took a trip to Topaz Studio 2 and gave the image the ‘Smoothed and Dreamy‘ treatment under the ‘Precision Detail’ bar. I then fiddled with the saturation bar, adding some saturation and manipulating the red and yellow tones until I had an overall pink magenta look.
LocationLake Wagardu, Yanchep National Park, Western Australia
