Thread: Beach at Gibson Steps

  1. #1

    Default Beach at Gibson Steps

    Gibson Steps is a flight of stairs leading from Great Ocean Rd down
    a beach. Further down the road (and further down the beach...) would
    be the famous 12 Apostles, one of the main attraction of the Great
    Ocean Road.

    Damn, Singapore really sucks for landscape shots!

    Beautiful, very nice colours!

    It might be better if more of the beach is shown, thereby not cutting off the feet of the 2 beach-strollers. The sky has some allowance to be cut off.

    if use more wide angle of the shot would be better ...

    Nice shot. Did you stay there long enough to take sunset pictures? I believe it would be very nice also.
    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    I think that you have show a bit too much of the sky. It would be great if the 2 people can be seen as a whole and that the whole pic shift abit to the left.

    Either that, it might be better if you "cut" the people off at ard your waist level and have them to a corner ..... just to show how majestic the place look.

    Just my $0.02

    Yeah, I also think it would be nicer if I managed to get them with their feet...
    I was actually composing for the scenery when the couple walked into my Canon G1
    LCD view... hey not bad .. snap ... look at the preview .... look up ... the couple has walked on....

    Thanks all for your comments & advise!

    No, I went to the 12 Apostles for sunset pics... When I reached there at abt 8.30pm (the sun sets at abt 9pm),
    there were already scores of people with tripods all set & ready
    anyway, the sunset was not spectacular that day... but in any case, I also did not manage to take good pics

    So you were there recently (Nov/Dec 2001)? I was there in May 2001. Was autumn then and the sun set at 5pm at that time of the year!

    Was driving on my own along the Great Ocean Rd. So by the time I reached the 12 Apostles was abt 4pm. Missed this Gibson Steps Had like only 1 hour to take pics at the 12 Apostles. Most of my shots weren't good as the sun was shining directly at where I was.

    Tried going to the Lord Arc George and the London Bridge too but was dark by then

    The next time I go to Melbourne, I'll make it a point to set aside at least 2 days to take pics along the Great Ocean Road. Esp the 12 Apostles area. Certainly get spoilt for choice in terms of natural landscapes there!

    Hi Blitz,

    The horizon needs to be leveled (meaning parallel to the top/bottom of the pic). That is the 1st thing people look at on a lanscape pic involving horizon. A slanted horizon looks very unatural as we are used to level horizon in real life, and it would really spoil the pic. Luckily if the shot is digital at least it can be easily corrected in PS...

    Wow! You spent 6 days along the Great Ocean Road??? Fantastic! Maybe I should also do that. Where did u stay along the way? I assume you drove around yourself too?

    Besides the Great Ocaen Road, did you manage to go to The Grampians? Another fantastic place for lots of nature and scenery shots. Lots of hiking too! Again, I spent only a day there and it wasn't enough for me to explore and take enough pics.

    This pic was taken using my SLR camera. Dunno why the 2 lines appear after I scan.

    Anyway, this is how Gibson Steps looks like from the 12 Apostles viewing platform. It was sunset and very cloudy that day, so the pic didn't turn out great.



    This one is a view of The Grampians from about 2km away.

    yup, 4 of us ... my friends did most of the driving tho
    stayed 2 nites at YHA in Lorne & 4 nites in an apartment in Princetown
    Grampians was in my initial plan, but after taking into account the to-and-fro-time from Princetown, decided to give it a miss....
    Most pple would do the Great Ocean Rd in 1-2 days, esp those tour packages (less than 1 day!!)... not my way of enjoying the place
