St Kilda Pier

20 08 2009

Went to go out for a shoot this morning but this rain wont just stop lol .

Woke up had a look out side and didn’t look to bad outside so got dress packed up my gear and head out to check a local spot off my list . While driving I though we could be in for a nice sunrise and there was still lots of gaps in the clouds and not to much heavy clouds . got to my location and started setting up took a couple of test shots while waiting for sunrise and then the next thing you know the sky is gone completely dark grey its starts raining came out of nowhere and wasn’t going to let up . So packed up and head home with no shots this  is morning . Hoepfully will get a break in the weather soon .

Finished off editing a couple of shoots from Melbourne this morning though .

Went down to the old Pier in St Kilda was hoping for a colorfull sunset that eveing but got a grey cold windy one instead lol .

Did two versions of this image a color shot and a hi key black and white .  Cant really decide which I prefer .

nice Kirk

I really like the colour version.
i think the clouds have much more impact in that image.
the lights/reflections also stand out alot more for me.

so my votes on that one 🙂

my vote kirk goes for the B&W, just needs a little more definition in the sky …

I like the colour version as well, although the colours are washed out I still think it’s a beaituful image and the black and white doesn’t have as much contrast. Great composition, Kirk!

B&W for me. It just has more of a classic/timeless feel about it.

I prefer the bw as it has more simplicity, the colours to not add to the photo in this instance. I agree with Neal, perhaps a touch more definition without going crazy on the contrast curves though.

Hey Kirk, I prefer the colour version. The B&W needs some more definition in the sky. BTW.. nice composition.

Great to read about your experiences in Melbourne Kirk – having spent time in all the cities I love what melbourne has to offer in the cbd and inner burbs (as far as cities go!). So many things on whther it be festivals,sport,arts,music,shopping and food and the best thing is the people get into it all generally regardless of the weather.

Hopefully next trip you will get some better light, though you still got some top images to go with your new found extra kilos. ;P 🙂

Hi Kirk

I’d be really interested in purchasing a 60cm hi-res image of the St Kilda Pier.
To be used in a brochure that I’m doing for a client.

Is it for sale?
