The Pole House
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
The Pole House
The Pole House
The Pole House at Fairhaven near the start of the Great Ocean Road is one Australia's most easily recognizable and iconic homes. Built in 1978 by architect/engineer Frank Dixon it is one of the few survivors of the 1983 Ash Wednesday bushfires. It sits perched on a concrete pole about 40 meters above the beach at Fairhaven and offers unsurpassed and stunning views along the ocean from Airey's Inlet to Lorne.
This is a HDR image created from a single RAW file with a fair bit of post-processing.
Nikon D50 18-200mm VR lens.

    This is an incredible image! The DOF,POV, colors and composition make this a winner by far! "Unsurpassed and stunning views" fit this perfectly!

Thanks for the comment Chris. Ah well it happens Chris and I have missed many a good shot too. BTW you have to go onto private property to get this view.

Peter, I noticed you have two finalists in the category of travel and place (maybe more?) so congratulations on all you receive! :) I looked through your gallery the other day, and can't remember if I commented or not (old age has firmly set in) but this is one of my top favorites in your gallery--the colors, tones, composition and the subject are all terrific. So, congratulations again and here's hoping for a gold for you!

Thanks Jennifer. This was made from a single raw file using a HDR program. That can give this sort of colour effect if you manipulate the controls appropriately.
