Here’s a shot I took on Friday.
I went out exploring after I got home from work.
Not being able to get shots of what I was hoping to, I headed down to Iron Cove Bridge and took some long exposures.
Whilst I’ve included the original here, I don’t quite like how it turned out.
It probably has to do with the lights, but I find the sky to be a bit too bright.
Other than some slight sharpening, I mostly adjusted the black levels and ended up with the first.
With the second one, I made the contrast stronger. I think I also lowered the saturation, but I can’t quite remember.
I like the second one the most due to it looking dirtier, the lights being less bright and it being being more minimal in detail than the other two.
However, I still like the first for how much smoothness is in it as well as how well it shows the bridge.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy.
