    Turned out very nice Dave. It looks like quite a few buildings have shot up since the last time I have taken photos of it.

  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Debbie. Very quick process and tag while I was eating dinner ;-)
  • HPVD Photos said:
    Very nice work, love those few leaves just in front, excellent.
  • David de Groot said:
    Ah see the leaves I find annoying, should have reached over and snapped them off... oh well.

    Beautiful Colour & clarity.
    Thanks for your help / tips tonight David - much appreciated
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Andrew, how'd you get on ?
    Darn foreground trees, I think I'd prefer it without them.
    No probs Kat - hope it all helps :)

    awesome shot dave... perfect composition and exposure!
    my eyes kept getting drawn to the boat down the bottom with the little dots of it's nav lights! rather cool that! :-)
  • Jennifer Renee said:
    Very nice David! I like the tone of blue, it gives it a very calm clear feel... well done
  • suburbanvoodoo said:
    Hey Dave, great job, love the water :-)
  • David de Groot said:
    I saw the boat coming and quickly made sure my exposure settings were right so I could get it in ;-)
    She's a pretty city when she wants to be.
    The secret is in the white balance setting ;-)
    Danke :)
  • Ross_M said:
    So thats why they call it Blue Hour - very cool
  • David de Groot said:
    Yep :) Although as you would have noticed this evening, it's nowhere near an hour long.
  • CAUT said:
    Great Shot!
    This one is a bit similar:

    I took it yesterday
  • David de Groot said:
    Further along the cliffs from where I was by the looks of it, and a tad earlier in the afternoon. By the way, the time on your camera is out.

  • beaumitchell said:
    Great work, David.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks :)
    No probs Jenny, after all, I've shot from the cliffs a fair bit, so it wasn't like I needed to really "get the shot" so to speak. ;-)
    Not bad eh ?
    Thanks Beau :)
  • jaclyn_teh2000 said:

  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks :)
  • FrAcTuReD...fOtOs said:
    An absolute delight David - Good ol Brisbane town eh.
    Weather in the Blue Mountains is misty and chilly. Went to the local RSL tonight for a drink and get some info on Saturday regarding the march and the sign out front said 12c LOL.
  • David de Groot said:
    She's a pretty city, as cities go. :)
    Well, it's apparently 14.6c outside right now at home at 6:30am. Winter is on the way. Mind you, we're heading for a top of 28 today.
  • FrAcTuReD...fOtOs said:
    Brrrrrrrrrrrr - that's the difference - the days are just glorious!!
  • stephenk1977 said:
    I like the sky colour in this shot, and the light trail from the CityCat.
  • David de Groot said:
    True, although it was a tad warm yesterday at 30C.
    THanks Stephen :)
