Sydney Harbour by SD Smart

My first image from a recent trip to Sydney.

Panorama taken at Milsons Point on the wharf just outside Luna Park (squeezing in as many icons as I could) past the waiting ferry, under the Sydney Harbour Bridge back towards the Opera House.

It rained a short time later and we watched a lightning storm pass over as we caught the next ferry to Circular Quay. Followed up with some perfect lamb shanks and a quiet drink…

Canon 50D
10-20mm (at 20mm)
HDR (-2,0,+2)
each set gently tonemapped in Photomatix
and then merged using ‘Photomerge’ and final touches in CS3.

    beautiful (definitely needs to be seen larger) – great colours, love the way you’ve captured the curve on the bridge, it really brings out the majesty of it!
