Circular Quay, Sydney – Up Close
Circular Quay is always busy – it is the ferry wharf serving Sydney Harbour. From here you can catch a ferry to the Zoo, Manly and many other places around Sydney.
To the left is the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Historic Rocks Area and the Museum of Contemporary Art. To the right is the Sydney Opera House leading to the beautiful Botanic Gardens. And behind is the railway, an expressway and finally the commercial district with its tall buildings.
Today I am showing you just a little of Circular Quay – up close and without the ferries, tourists, commuters and street performers.
The following images have been cropped to either a square or 4×5, and edited using Photoshop – Hue / Saturation and Selective Colour adjustments, Curves and Tone changes, Increased Vibrance and PS Photo Filter – Warming.
The second series I once again used my favourite PS Filter Gallery – Poster Edges. I also used Dark Strokes. Curves and Levels were further adjusted and Vibrance increased and Edges Sharpened.
And finally, Playtime, using Nik Color Efex and Topaz Clean Filters. I also using the PS Magic Wand and Selection Tool to remove areas and “Paste Into” to combine images. In some I copied and pasted the same image, rotating them and increasing the transparency each time.
Thanks everyone for your art and your comments last week. What have you in store for us today?
All you need to do is add your orange image to the linky list below. Remember though. if it is a photograph experiment a little (or a lot) to make some changes. And of course, all kinds of art and media are encouraged!
