Early Risers

by William Dawson

Earlier this month I went into the city early in the morning. The air was quite cool, and as you can tell in the photo below the sun was having trouble peaking through the clouds.

Above is Swan Street bridge, that spans over the Yarra River. The blue flags on the opposite bank of the river are advertising the Australian Open in January next year.

Here is Swan Street bridge again, but looking towards Melbourne’s CBD. I really like this shot. It is a HDR image made up of four bracketed photos processed in Photomatix Pro. The same goes for this photo below:

This one was taken further away from the bridge, and looking the opposite direction. This was one of the first photos I took, when the sun was still rising which meant the original HDR image had a blue tinge to it. I upped the temperature to about 5.5 and ended up with this. What do you think?

  1. The river is so calm, you don’t see that very often. I must do that again, get into the city early in the morning, I love it then. Great shots William.

  2. You have given new light to the bridge and river. I pass by here often and have never seen it as beautiful as that before.
