Shorncliffe Pier – Sunset

shorncliffe-pier-10The weekend brought forth the delights of Shorncliffe and Redcliffe on the north eastern side of Brisbane.

The main reason for going was Shorncliffe Pier.  I came away after sunset a bit disappointed as there was a lot of cloud cover and it wasn’t as colourful as expected and the tide decided not to follow my instructions.

After several attempts I finally found one I really, really liked so have put it forward for scrutiny. Unfortunately just found out all my photos from this weekend are in .jpg nor RAW so I am somewhat disappointed but that will teach me a lesson.

I have quite a few photographs of this particular pier, Redcliffe pier (it was pier heaven!!!) and surrounds which I will post in the next day or so.  I had so many photos it has taken me this long to sift through them to find a few (I had over 500 to start with).  Also after having risen early this morning for sunrise, I think now at 9:30ishpm I’m a bit tired so will not rush through putting up a post about the weekend adventures until later.

I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend or for others still enjoying a new Sunday just starting, I hope its a great one.

  1. What’s the difference between jpeg and raw? I think your picture looks great! 🙂


    • Thanks Adrienne. Jpegs are normal photos that our camera’s give us. They do have a set of presets that determine how they will look. RAW strips that back and has more information available to you to alter post processing. Its hard to explain because each of us might have a different view. I have put a link that may or may not help. Let me know!! 🙂 . I just find it better in the post processing area to clean up my photos and have them the way I want them to look not predetermined in a jpeg, yet still look like the scene I have photographed.


      • Thanks for the link. This was very helpful and I liked this website a lot. I “liked” them on facebook so I can go back for more tutorials. I’ll have to play with this this summer. Do you use Adobe photoshop?


      • I do or I did like Photoshop more but I find lightroom a bit easier to use.. I think they are both great and you can do different things on each of them. I’m so glad you liked the link. I have them on Facebook and email. They are so full of handy tips and technical posts as well. I often refer back to them.


  2. The lights were lined up and add vertical dimensions! Like it!
