Challenge: Powerlines (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Nikon D300s
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM for Nikon
Location: Maribyrnong, Melbourne, Australia
Date: Dec 7, 2009
Aperture: F11
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/800
Galleries: Sky, Architecture
Date Uploaded: Dec 6, 2009

The Image: Took this almost lying on the ground with a 10mm-20mm zoom. I tried with a fishey, but the distortion didn't qiute work for me. Cloudy sky was a blessing.

The Edit: Layers/Masks of colour adjustments to create an almost surreal/graduated filter look. Some contrast, curves, burning. Noise Ninja after a resize with a mask as I didn't want to loose some details. I finally duplicated the layer and chose Multiply, pulled back the opacity and that increased the contrast further.

The Prediction: Don't ask me...I have no Mojo at the moment, so forget it :( Some won't like the edit.

Post Challenge: This came as a complete surprise and shock! I was just hoping to be in the top 10, but a red? That's awesome!!! Thank you everyone.

That is just killer in all respects. LOVE the purple and amber combination. The symmetry and linear quality of the structure, from that angle, is almost like an arts and crafts stained glass piece! AWESOME. Congrats.

Nicely done, Enzo. Love the symmetry. Was that a little Nik Color EFEX filter I see there?

Very nice. Lovely colors. Hard to do. as you say, you either lie down or
fall down leaning backwards.
I shot one of these but, fortunately, went with something else.

I haven't been caring much for these direct from the bottom shots, but you managed to catch some great clouds behind this one. Certainly cranked up a bit, but for this one it works.

Ugly iron, steel, and lines but it sure did make a stunning shot. Love the drama of color and light.

Incredible sky on this popular pov. Still, it's more about the tower than the power lines...
