The Grandeur of Royal Exhibition Building

Welcome to my new blog!

Hi all! I hope you enjoy my new blog. The aim is to upload my latest work for all to see, and who knows maybe inspire others in their photography.You might notice I already have a Flickr photostream dedicated to the same thing, but I think this blog would be a much nicer format for people to look at don't you? I certainly appreciate you visiting my pages so feel free to leave comments, post links to your work etc...

Are you left or right brained?

One thing I find increasingly interesting is how our brains work, especially when it comes to art and how our brains perceive it. Right brained people share a unique persepctive on the world and are often quite artistic. Check out this fun little Left Vs Right Brain Test.

Nearby where I work are the ever green Carlton Gardens. This has always been a little haven from the hustle and bustle of the city and a great place for city workers to take some time out. The area is also home to the Royal Exhibition Building. Did you know that this building was earmarked in the 1950s to be demolished? Its now a listed World Heritage Site! This made for some good photo ops....This shot was taken on Christmas Eve at midday.

The photo is a 3 Exposure HDR +/- 2 with middle exposure @ ISO100 F2.8 1/1000sec. I used a humble Canon Powershot G9 with a Slik tripod at full height. I always shoot in RAW format. During post processing I use, Photomatix, Photoshop CS4 and Topaz Adjust.

  1. This building and gardens are one of my most favourite spots in Melbourne and this photograph is also one of my most favourite of yours. It is ethereal and makes me imagine what it would have been like way back when the building and gardens were first constructed.

  2. wow ...this is utterly amazing...I love the sky especially...and I can only imagine what stories an old building like this would have locked in it's walls...
    I am inspired!!!
