Einasleigh

Einasleigh

So there we have it the final image in the Silver Efex Pro series.
Classic monochrome images reproduced with ease.  It almost felt at times that I was back in my darkroom.
Tell you what, I might even go and buy an orange safelight to hang above my monitor!

Hoss Cartwright

Hoss Cartwright

The penultimate image in the Silver Efex Pro series of 8ight.

Today’s image was taken at a recent horse sports event at a place called Einasleigh in Far North Queensland. Where over two days local riders young and old pitted their skills against each other thus showing off their horse riding prowess.

It all looked far too dangerous for me, and there were times when even the local ‘Bush nurse’ on duty didn’t dare look!
No worries mate. For around these parts, riding before learning to walk is the norm.
I couldn’t help but notice this gentle giant on his horse who reminded me so much of ‘Hoss Cartwright’ from the hit show ‘Bonanza. But that’s just me showing my age.

Ah Friday evenings. 1960’s all over again.
Watching Bonanza whilst eating Fish and chips from the chippy, brought home by dad on his pushbike.

Wrapped in newspaper of course.

The chips not my dad!

Here have a listen to the theme tune

Who let the dogs out!

Who let the dogs out!

A lone Land Rover Defender driving down the Strzelecki Track in South Australia, mine in fact.

I was delivering the mail to some of the remote sheep station families that live along the track.

The original image was shot in Raw format on a Nikon D200 and 17-55mm Nikkor lens.
Next opened up in Lightroom 2, vivid profile applied then exported to CS4.
This is where Silver Efex Pro comes into it’s own. A simple task of applying the ‘Antique Plate’ style and voila classic monochrome images without the chemicals.
