The Great Void_Perry Sand Dunes_NSW_Australia

Welcome to the New Year, 2010. I hope it’s a peaceful and prosperous one for you and your family. As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’II be making numerous changes to this blog over coming weeks to make your experience a more visually interesting one. I’ve taken note of requests for articles on ISO and shooting long exposures. They’ll follow shortly as will some more posts relating to travel and flash photography.

The above image was made during December at the Perry Sand Dunes, near Wentworth in far southwest NSW (New South Wales), Australia. I’II be sure to post more images from this great location over the next couple of days.

In the case of the above pic I employed Adobe Lightroom 2 for initial processing and then Adobe Photoshop CS4 to produce the final warm tone, sepia-like rendition. As well as the variations in tonality, from light to dark, I love the shapes and textures contained in this image. The dark round hole in the lower right corner of the image is a great abstract shape, a kind of void, into which the landscape seems to be collapsing.
