Down Under by Rahll Down Under by Rahll
I decided to challenge myself to do a matte painting with only photos I've taken in Australia. Gotta be somewhere between 30 and 40 in there, I didn't start with a very good plate. I worked on it a couple weeks on and off, it was a pain at times considering I only have a Leica point and shoot, but I'm happy with it. Hope you like it!

Also, for those curious, photos used were primarily taken around Byron Bay, Mount Tamborine, and Stradbroke Island. 

Simple video step by step process here, make sure to watch it in HD! www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vbM8P…

Great stuff, really captures what's unique about the Australian bush compared to other biomes. Only thing that makes it seem a little less Aussie is too many clouds in the sky :D

Be happy you're not over here at the moment. It's so hot that Stradbroke is actually on fire.

Haha, my fiance lives in Brisbane and all she did was complain yesterday about the 43C you guys were experiencing. She looked like she was melting on Skype.
