Photo Friday Extreme Winner James
What camera did you use? A Nikon D300s
What settings did you use? The exposure was 15sec @f8, Auto white balance (tends to go blue in these conditions with the Nikon but it’s the effect I was after).
What inspired this shot? This storm cell developed very quickly and by chance I decided to drive down to the waterfront to check out a more distant storm. In the 20 minutes it took me to decide to go out this cell had developed over the bay. Right place, right time!
Did you edit this image, if so what did you do and with what program? I used Capture NX2 to adjust levels and a light touch of sharpening.
Where was this photo taken? It was shot over Corio Bay at Geelong in Victoria.
Do you have any advice for our community of photographers? Experiment and learn by making mistakes and trying different things even if they don’t work. I also put myself in a position where I’m more likely to get good shot, when I ‘m not sure about going out I always say to myself, “If you don’t go, you don’t know!”.
