Sydney CBD Skyline

at Blue Hour.

One of the last shots from Saturday evening. I took four more of the Opera House/Harbour Bridge and then we made our way to the train station through tens of thousands of people who had descended on the CBD for the opening night of the Sydney Festival.

    Indeed, look at that, managed to post nearly identical comps. within a couple of minutes of each other without knowing what the other was doing!
    Thanks Kath :) I'd shot the two big drawcards and a lass from Perth who we were giving pointers to mentioned that she'd shot the skyline earlier in the week and got decent reflections off it, which was enough to jog the somewhat addled brain into gear and prompt me to give it a whirl.

    Yep - no point shooting it during the day, it was hot and very bright in the sun.
    Thanks Michelle :)

  • Xenedis said:
    Heh; I think you were busy chatting to the Perthie while I sodded off to capture my cityscape.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Tim - facing pretty much directly at where the sun went down, thus the natural light fall-off in the upper corners.
    I think you're probably right there.

  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Jeff. Oddly I thought this one was probably the least strong of the four Sydney shots I've posted so far.

    Lea likes it too, so it's just me that thinks it's a bit ordinary ;-)
