  1. Hey Jaydon, I took my camera up to Mt Tamborine and had a crack at taking some shots of Curtis falls and the creek on the weekend. Was surfing the net and came upon your shots of the same area. I’ve seen quite a few lately, but yours stand out as being the best by a mile (I’m very jealous in fact!). In any case, can I ask you a few technical questions about the post-processing of the photos? Not sure if this is the right forum of not…? Let me know!

      1. Sorry, bit technical (from one not so technical):

        In relation to the Mt Tamborine, Natural Arch & Buderim photos in particular…

        What time of the day were they shot? Were they stiched photos or singles? Did you use filters on any of these shots? Do you use a panoramic head on your tripod for the shots (the Buderim pano is great and taken from a very unexpected angle)

        Can I ask how you do your post-processing of the shots? I really like the vignetting effects used, as well the way the colours (green in particular) seem to pop. Do you use Photoshop, Lightroom or something else? Do you bracket the photos and then combine the layers? Basically just trying to get a feel for how you go about playing with those images…

        Apologies for the general questions, just trying to work out how to make my shots look better…

        Thanks again!

      2. ok, ill answer away anyway, (and i’m sorry it’s taken so long, i stopped using word press for a while.

        What time of the day were they shot? At dusk, when the light is low.
        Were they stiched photos or singles? Single photos but some phtos i do stitch.

        Did you use filters on any of these shots? I used an ND8 filter as well, which is complete darkness

        Do you use a panoramic head on your tripod for the shots (the Buderim pano is great and taken from a very unexpected angle) i use a pano head yes, and thanks,

        i use a combination of aperture and photoshop and some photoshop plugins.

        any more questions please ask, and sorry again for the bad delay

      3. Hey Jaydon,

        Yea, thanks for the reply – it was all good. I’m having a break from shooting photos at the moment (damn kids, work, study and ironman). I tried re-creating your photos, to see how close I could get back around when I asked these original questions – only moderately successful. Loved your work then, and I intend to (try to) get back into it soon… Again, thanks for the tips (back then and again now)!
