Photo Description

“The Bullring” Ocean Baths, Forster NSW.

The Forster Ocean Baths, or “The Bullring” as the locals call it, sits right next to the ocean on the eastern side of Forster Main Beach.

I still remember this day funnily enough. It was taken in June 2017 and quite a cold Winter morning. I was keen to squeeze in a morning surf before work and had noticed how glassy the water at the baths was on the way past. It was void of any swimming crew this morning, probably because it was quite cold and overcast, looking like it was going to rain at any moment.

It looked beautiful how still the water was and it really made the access railing stand out against the water. At the time I thought it didn’t need anything more to improve it, so I positioned my camera low on the water’s edge to help isolate the railing. Thanks to the darkness of the morning I was able to create a long exposure as well, so the ocean and clouds smoothed out nicely also.

The title of the image is taken from a quote by Leonardo Da Vinci, who said “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”. I think that sums it up perfectly, relating to the elegance and sophistication that an uncomplicated scene can achieve.

Product Materials Used

Paper Types Used

Lustre paper - This is like a blend between matt and glossy paper and is one of the highest quality papers within the printing industry. It has a beautiful look to it and the feel of a professional, high quality print.

Metallic paper - Metallic paper adds a unique flair to your photographs. A high contrast "chrome on paper" look, metallic paper adds extreme vibrancy to colours, giving your image greater details and depth.

Canvas Prints

We only use the highest grade, fade resistant HD pigment inks and premium quality 400gsm, museum grade, tight weave Hahnemühle archival canvas. Every canvas print is also coated with a non-cracking UV protective coating.

The canvas is then stretched around an eco friendly, kiln dried wooden frame and finished with professional framers tape and hanging wire.

All canvas prints are also printed at a super high resolution (2880 dpi) using EPSONS ULTRACHROME HDx technology, giving amazing clarity and ultra vivid colours!
