Default Sydney Night Shots

These were all taken using a tripod. All the pictures here were taken of and from the Opera House.

Great job, Lou.
The opera house always makes a wonderful subject for photographing.
I like the lighting in these. Good job.

Very nice, just a question, what are the swirls above the opera house.

Did you get a chance to shoot the southern cross when you were in the southern hemisphere?

The opera house has to be one of the most photogenic buildings in the world. I love the lighting and color tones on these. Well done, Lou.

I was unable to make out what it was as the lighting was bright and whatever it was was moving too fast. They could have been Swifts or Bats.

I saw the Southern Cross both from the plane flying down to Melbourne and at night from Uluru. The sky from the outback is unbelievably beautiful but I was too lazy to drag out mt tripod and get a shot of it.

My apologies for not linking to Zenfolio correctly. I have replaced the link and it is now functioning, for anyone who would like to go to it to see the rest of the pictures.

you didnt get a shot of the southern cross???
you slacker
lol
the bridge is a great shot (did they tell you how many bolts were in it, or that Paul Hogan painted it, before he became a comedian??)
but i really like the last shot, the stairs leading up to the doors, the arches, even the people add something to the shot

i am guessing the streaks would be birds catching insects attracted to the lights
it happens here
and i will agree about the night sky in the outback, you get to see so many more stars than in the city

beautiful series, those streaks that john just described where the only question I had, and he answered already.

Keep up the great work
