River Reflections_Lorne_Great Ocean Road

Canon 5D Mark II camera and Canon 24-105mm f4 IS lens. Exposure Details: 1/8 second @ f8 ISO 400

Late afternoon light and very little breeze provided great conditions for this image of the Swing Bridge and Boathouse in Lorne on Victoria’s Great Ocean Road. Nestled by the shoreline, at the mouth of the Erskine River, both structures are icons of the township.

I suspect that, for many folk, the above photograph is as much about memory and nostalgia as it is about the bridge and building. I composed the image in such a way to make a pleasing arrangement of the various focal points (bridge, building, boats) and their reflections. I hope the design of the image serves to bring the individual elements together in a pleasing and cohesive form.

Initial image processing was conducted in Adobe Lightroom 2, prior to final tone and contrast adjustments being applied in Adobe Photoshop CS5. A predominantly warm split tone was added to further enhances the nostalgic nature of the image.
