Photographer's Note

This is a small stream ending at Hyams Beach, which is central on Jervis Bay. It was small enough that I couldn’t find it on a map or any literature so I can’t give you the name of it but it is typical of many small streams I’ve seen in New South Wales, and last year in South Australia. I don’t know if it’s the dry conditions that cause this, but they just seem to just end, several feet from the ocean. It would be interesting to study, to see what kind of life lives in these waters.

Closer to the ocean you can see the famous white sands of Hyams Beach. The buildings, just barely seen across the water are part of the HMAS Creswell, originally built by the Australian government as a Naval Training College, and of course those great Eucalypts, run along most of Jervis Bay.

I have included another shot of this stream, taken from the end and looking up-stream, in the workshop.

I follow a generic workflow now as outlined in my Bio.
Details and differences to this are as follows:
Shot taken at 17mm, ISO 250, f/13, 1/90 sec
Curves – trees masked
Saturation increased to +40 on master, (to match web colour – proof colours with shot)
Overlay layer with 5% opacity black brush used for burning
Saved at 81% quality for 196K (300K limit would be nice)
