Jamie Paterson – Images of Inspiration, Captivation, and Fascination

Perth City Reflections

perth western australia jamie paterson photography australian landscapes

Hi Everyone!

I just love this photo.   I was walking to work on Saturday and of course I had my camera with me, I was trying to get a few urban landscape shots.   Anyhow as always is the case I had my eyes on the street and had walked up and down the street twice getting shots of doors and steps before I looked up and saw this.   I guess the time of day was just right.   It really does show though that whenever you can you should always carry your camera with you because you just don’t know where your next shot is going to come from.

Photo Settings (for Chloe):

Lens – Canon 16-35mm F/2.8 USM II

Aperture – F16

ISO – 100

Shutter – 1/25sec

Have any of you guys taken a walk through the city trying to get photos?   Whether it be Perth or elsewhere?    Have you ever dragged your camera along ‘just in case’ and then end up getting a cool shot?

  1. Very nice shot Jamie… I really like the colours and vibrancy of the image. 1 criticism though (and it happens to me all the time), the image would have benefited if the building was lined up, ie straight lines? But hey… that is my opinion.

  3. absolutely love it mate, it would be good to clone the building on the left out of the shot but it is still a cracker, mmm would look good with the black sky effect I show in my on-line tutorial. Check out my new pic mate http://christianfletcher.wordpress.com/2009/11/19/photomatix-tone-mapping-plugin-for-photoshop-australian-landscape-photographer/

    • Hi Christian,

      Thanks for the comment. I was looking at your fantastic tutorial but I decided I wanted this photo to be mine and not a poor attempt at copying a brilliant photo. Good luck with the bike race this weekend! Chrisitian in lycra pants? Not a great though.

    • Hi Adrian,

      Thanks for the comment. Sorry it took so long to respond. We are right in the middle of moving 250 people from one office to another. Talk about hectic!

    Love the photo Jamie. Certainly didn’t see anything like that in PNG. I see your shooting video too these days. Just imagine if you had that 5D mk2…….Tee Hee!!!!!!

    • Hey Mike.

      Might have to cross you off the Xmas card list if you keep that up! 😉 Thanks for the comment on the photo mate, I appreciate it.

    • Hi Danny,

      Thank for the comment mate. I’ve managed to hook up with some urban landscape photography gurus and I’m catching up with them on Sunday evening so I’m looking forward to getting some more city shots.

  8. Crisp and Blue. I like it. Don;t you like the fact that when something is reflected light is lost, so you have the capability of having more colors.

    Great job!

    Great shot! I love the slight variation in the colors which are reflected in the building. Clouds look beautiful……..building on left doesn’t bother me….lends a bit of scale.

    • Hi Mitch,

      Thank you very much for commenting. Yes I thought the building gave it scale as well. 🙂
