Sydney Opera House

19 04 2009


Still going through my images from my Sydney trip this year .

 Went down to the Sydney Opera House a couple of times as it was close to where we were staying in the CBD and  The Sydney skyline and Opera House would have to be one of my favourite skylines to photography besides the Perth skyline  .  Would have to be one of my favourite cities in Australia as well  , If i did’nt live in Perth could easly live in either Sydney or the Gold Coast .

The light wasn’t great while I was over there  so I tried some long exposures at night time . Did get a lot of people (mainly tourists ) come up to me while I was photographing the Opera House either they were intrigued in why I was panning up or wanted to check out the 5D MKII ,  also got a lot of comments from teenagers walking past say stuff like the ” bombest camera ” lol

While I was over there probally took about 24 gigs worth of images , The light wasn’t great for the whole trip but still got a few images which I’m saving for the website launch . Did manage to scope out a few locations to return to next time I’m over that side of the country .

 This was a 3 image vertical stitch .

Real nice shot mate, very good. My only criticism would maybe could crop a small bit of the top and the bottom but thats a minor point and not that important.

Hi Kirk, another stunning shot. Obviously this missed the cut for the website launch , I am looking forward to seeing what made the grade. Beautiful!

Beautifull shot Kirke, very tranquil and calming.

I’ve never seen anything like this, the vertical stitch is really unique, I love it. I agree with Tony, I love the simplistic composition. Sometimes less is definitely more 🙂
