Photographer's Note

Gibson’s Steps is a location on the Great Ocean Road along “Shipwreck Coast”. This spot is actually the first sightseeing stop in Port Campbell National Park, for people heading west on this road.

The “Steps” refers to the staircase of 86 steps which leads down to the beach at the base of this 70 m limestone cliff.

This shot was one of several that I took from the cliff top. Being in a rush to get to the 12 Apostles, with night and a storm coming, we didn’t actually descend on this trip, (next time maybe).

Much of this from:

Workflow was as follow:
Shot in Raw - NEF files adjusted for highlights and shadow
Rotated to level (based on horizon) and cropped
Adjusted levels
Adjusted curves – land and sea done separately from the sky
Dodged and burned with overlay layer (5% opacity brush)
Added a layer for sharpening and “over-sharpened” with Smart Sharpen
Modified sharpening with a layer mask (15% opacity black brush)
Saved as a tiff
For this post, further cropped and sharpened for the reduced size, framed, and saved as a jpeg
