Frematle Fishing Boat Harbour

16 07 2008

Just a quick post and shot  . This was from last Sunday morning at Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour . Got up twice on the weekend before 6am 🙂 , Meet Jamie http://jamiepatersonphotography.wordpress.com/ and Neal http://spoolphotography.wordpress.com/ down at the cold warf . The sunrise was pretty good but we missed most the color as it was behind the boats and buildings , however i did take a walk down to the beach to get some shots of the clouds . When I returned back to the warf I had found Jamie had found a local bird who was fond of having there shot taken lol 😉 .

This was one of the shots i took still havent looked through them all yet . Was origianlly at 18 image stitch of the whole warf looked pretty impressive but far to wide . I think I croped this down to about 8 or 9 images  . One of the boats has a bit of motion blur from the long exposure , but i have some others shots from later in the morning with quicker shutters  still to go through . I still really liked where the clouds where to one side of this shot and it went from dark to light

Awesome colors Kirk, I like the glassy feel and that large white boat facing the other way really adds appeal for me. I have yet to go through mine.

Yeah we can take the photographer out of the studio but we can’t take portrait photographer out of the photographer … (Jamie)

Kirk, this picture is AAA Class, you wouldn’t get much better. The only little thing I’d say is it could be just a touch too wide ,but then what could you leave out, it’s all good, well done and great processing.

How are you going with the tripod purchase?

Thanks Merv ,
Yeah its a slighly too wide but didnt know what else to leave out .
The original was huge and cut in half almost .

Yeah Purchased mine today from RPA it was only about $30 more expensive then B&H in America . Got the one i was looking at and a Manfrotto 488RC2 Midi Ball Head which they recomended .
Would have loved a Gitzo but couldnt justify the price at the moment as am going to order a 17-40mm Canon lens soon as well .
Mabye get a Gitzo in a couple of years time but who knows what will be out by then

Congrats on the new tripod and head, your gonna love the ball head, so easy to level on uneven ground, most times I don’t even bother with making sure the tripod is spot on level I just use the head to level it up. Makes for super fast adjustments which mean more time shooting less set up time.

Hey Kirk,

I just put a couple more bird photos on my blog.

Kirk mate what are your settings in PTGui for creating your pano?
My new version has the dpi set to 300 and I think in my PC version it was 72dpi so I would then go in photoshop and divide image size byt three and bring the dpi up to 250. I feel like I was getting a better image size before….
Hope that makes sense.

Hi, your photographs are amazing. I know this has probably been asked many times before but do you sell any of your photographs? This one of Fremantle Harbour is exactly what I am after. If you could let me know then that would be fantastic. Many thanks. Lisa
