Gold & Blue- Moods Of A City # 11 - The HDR Series - Sydney Harbour, Sydney Australia by 


This shot taken using 5 Exposures generating one HDR image, taken at sunset from Berrys Bay on the Northern shore of Sydney Harbour.
For those visiting Sydney , Berrys Bay/Balls Head is easily accessable from by tain on the North Shore railway line . This side of the harbour offers panoramic views and the cheapest way to explore Sydney is with an explorer pass .

Equipment: Nikon D300, Nikon 18-200 lens, no filters, processed usin Photomatix HDR Software

My continuing experience with HDR is a learning one some tries work the way you expect sometimes they are a bit different… but hey it’s fun !

    Love the golden tones on the buildings. I know what you mean about HDR, I have found that you don’t always get what you thought you would. It seems to depend on the original lighting conditions when you take the shots.

  • I’m finding that the more you do landscapes the more you become a bit of a weatherperson. This shot was taken last night Tuesday 6th Sydney time , i grabbed the camera because i could see the clouds,sun etc lining up. Was such great light. Thanks again tom
