Sydney Harbour Landscape

Took this the other night.
Very low res, I'm afraid, but some interesting light through the clouds IMHO.

5 shots. Canon 60D with 24-105L.
Hope you like it.

Great shot! I particularly like the colours of the 1st photo -those shades of blue - and with the lighter sky / dark clouds and lights (on bridge and in the city)  make a beautiful balance.

As an Aussie... it's an emotive and iconic image of our largest city - though I'm also glad to say I don't live in Sydney - as at this stage in my life I prefer the quieter pace & more community orientation of Adelaide...  ;)

Also, thanks wickidwombat for your images... a nice different perspective.

Cheers.

I'm not a brand-fanatic. What I do appreciate is using my 7D and 350D cameras along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.

Awesome shots guys. It's been almost 15 years since I last been to Sydney/Australia but hope to come back soon. That was back in the days of film before I knew what the heck I was really doing. Can't wait to go back with my 5d 3 and lenses and really go to town with them.

A couple more for you that I took in January.

The shot of the bridge was done using a star filter.
I think it makes the lights on the bridge look nice.

wickid, just curious what you did to get such a warm shot... was that light pollution, some special event such as firework smoke/fog, special on camera/post processing filters?  Just curious.

My take of the impressive skyline at night:

my guess is that it is simply the white balance that has been exaggerated via the HDR processing. i have had similar results at night with HDR with the colors shifting to the warmer side.

Those are some great shots of the Sidney skyline. I hope to get there next year and experiment a little with night shots. The bar has been set very high.

no it was raining all day and the cloud was super low thats why the sky isn't black it was a break in the rain and those shots are 5 exposures 1 stop increments run through photomatix all the colours on the opera house were because there was some event where they were projecting images onto the sails viewed from circular quay
I didnt adjust any colours or saturation (other than what photomatix does itself) I really should re-proccess these using luminosity masks.
