Brisbane City on a lazy Saturday evening

Shot from the top of Kangaroo Point Cliffs. People were out having picnics and I was finishing up some one-on-one training for a lovely couple heading to Nepal.

Dusk is getting longer as we approach summer which necessitated a slightly longer stay on site than any of us had planned on.

    [] Yeah the spiky plants really add something :)
    [] Thanks!
    [] Bit shot to death I'm afraid, but at least I got different foreground interest this time.
    [] Yep, something a little different.
    [] Quite Helen ;-) I don't venture into the Big Smoke too often. Work during the week is up-river a bit and not actually in the city itself.
    [] [] [] Thanks guys :)
    [] Sure does. Have a nice gamut of foreground, midground and background in this one.
    [] Yeah 'tweren't bad. Clouds didn't go awesomely pink, just a dusty orangey shade for a minute or so, but at least they added a little shape to the sky.
    [] Thanks Phil :)
    [] 'twould be even better on a week night, more lights.

    Great night scene of a cityscape David. Well exposed from the foreground to the back ground.

    The forground spikes are a great framing. It doesn't take anything away from the city which is nice a sharp.

    [] Thanks!
    [] Thanks Jules. It's been suggest to me elsewhere that the spiky plants might be too bright - not sure though.

    [] The city did good that evening Kath. Actually I suspect there may be a couple of extra coloured lights on the old girl these days.

    Great shot, I really like the reflecting lights.
    One of my student visited this city last summer, and talked about it in a speech I coached her on last fall. She took 4th place out of all the junior high students in the county!
