    Love the sky tones David!! Excellent light on the sails.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks James. I'd have lit it a little differently if it were up to me - too many harsh shadows, but well, you get that.
    Thanks Garry - glad I got a couple of good frames out of the trip, spent more time socialising and partaking in wines than shooting, which wasn't the plan at all. ;-)
    Yeah it's not easy to get a "new" location to shoot this thing.

    Looks so polished that I think this must be made into a poster!

    Beautiful opera house..
  • David de Groot said:
    Indeed Kane. Although this location has been shot to death, I'd not done it yet, so am pleased with the result.
    Thanks Andrew, just wish they weren't working on the bridge. The extra gantry and the patch with no lights on it is a pain.
    Good point, I'll plonk it on Redbubble.
    'tis fairly unique :)

    You're photography has improved to a true professional level mate. You're so far in front of me it's simply not funny! I wish I had 1/2 your talent mate!

  • David de Groot said:
    Awww shucks Bennie, what can I possibly say in response to that!
    I'm sure at some stage we'll manage to be in the same city AND know about it ;-) 'twould be good to catch up.
