Pic of the Week_A Moment of Reflection_Central Australia

Leica M6 camera and Leica 35mm f2 Summicron-M series lens with Kodak Ektachrome Elite 100 Extra Color film

One of the world’s great travel destinations, Central Australia offers giant landscapes, quite towns and tough, hard-working people. While indigenous Australians have clearly suffered as a result of European settlement, one can gain a sense of this ancient culture by visiting regions were the power of the landscape and the wisdom of its guardians remain strong.

The light raking across the landscape brought out the textures and vibrant color in the above scene. The green bushes and blue sky provide a nice color contrast with the orange-ochre rock face. The color of the shallow puddle in the foreground provided a connection with the mid-ground rock face. Finally, all these elements are brought together, to form a cohesive whole, by their individual shapes and the way they relate to each other.

Processing of the original file was conducted in Adobe Camera RAW and Adobe Photoshop CS5.
