Cooma in drought V2
I posted another version of this shot earlier in the year and whilst I like the shot I was never 100% happy with it as the original didn’t quite portray what I intended when I took the shot. It was taken on the late side of midday and right at the end of summer when the draught in this area was at its worst and therefore I wanted this picture to portray the stark and dry nature of the area and felt that the original was a little too much on the happy side of things.
I had the opportunity recently to exhibit some work as a part of my local camera clubs annual exhibition so I decided to have a second attempt at processing the image to make it closer reflect what I had in mind at the time of capture. I am happy with the result (I think it still needs a few tweaks) and it was well received by the public so I thought I would re post the image here. Let me know which version you like better?
