Not sure why I'm posting this photo but I guess I just wanted to demonstrate the effects of 'compression'. For this photo taken at the South Bank Parklands Brisbane, I used an 85mm f/1.8 lens to squeeze the arches together much like how a photographer would stack layers of mountains together. This gives the photo more of a compressed feel as opposed to using a wide angle lens to stretch the perspective out.
After getting back home, I then threw the photo into Lightroom and processed it in black and white. I used abit of split toning to change the traditional monotone look by adding a slight blue tinge to the shadows and a rustic brown tone to the highlights.
