It rained one night!
This image was shot at Darling Harbour, Sydney. Earlier in the evening, my camera bag had got nicked. I’d lost two SLR lenses and a point & shoot, along with some other tid-bits. As lost as I was in my thoughts, I noticed this boat with brilliant blue lights. The reflection on the freshly drenched ground was hard to ignore.
I’d shot this image both in RAW & JPEG. The JPEG bled too much blue out and I didn’t really like what I saw on my camera screen. Not feeling particularly upbeat that evening, I didn’t try much and gave up.
Only recently did I re-visit the RAW file and was able to process the above image. I have de-saturated the image a tiny bit. I don’t shoot much in RAW, but the kind of exposure tolerance it offers never fails to amaze me.

The crew were able to hook a Dorado this evening. What could have ended up as a crisp meal, turned out to be too heavy for the line… and was able to slip away.
