    I like it, M…! The “tight” black and white shot gives it a highly dramatic look and feel ~ which is perfect for the sort of building it is! It’s as though you felt the spirit of the place, rather than just took a photo of a popular Aussie icon. :)

  • Thanks D:)

    Nice comp! You recent experiments in high key might translate well here- lift the sails a bit with a clean white look? It’s all good fun :-)

  • Tried that but it loses detail in nthe sails, which is one of the aspects I like about this!!.
