I'm finding the color a bit kitschy...unless it was for some sort of breast-cancer awareness campaign...but being the opera, i doubt it. Cool capture anyways. Cheers!

Dear Guiseppe / Josef,
I have replied on a page in your folio to your interesting questions on desert geomorphology.
and Dear Andy,
Thanks for your visit and comment. I understand what you mean by kitschy in reference to the colour, Andy, but it was only for 2 nights and in respect of the peace that had come on 11.11.1918 to remember the many young men who died in the Great War in Europe including a great number of Australia's youth.
It is a very appropriate statement for Breast Cancer Awareness Week, which was held during the previous week. But I guess we will never know if that was part of the original purpose, as appropriate as it may be, for it has been publicly stated that it was for Remembrance Day.
I like 2 of your contest images very much. I wish you well with them.
I'm back Ian, for voting!! :)
Best wishes from Germany, Frank
Thanks Frank, thanks for your approval. Best wishes to you especially for Christmas.
Is a very dramatic photo! Light / moon/ night/ pinks/opera. R
I am delighted that you like it Robyn. See you soon, very soon. How about a night at the Opera House when you are down next?
Hello Ian; you know that I love Sydney and Opera House more. This one your shot is fantastic with own special colours in the night. It's very different than my shots and I added this image into my folder of favourites and VOTED.
Ciao, ciao. Flavio
Thank you sincerely, Flavio, and I am very pleased to be able to enhance your folio of images of Sydney. Thank too for the honour of Inclusion in your favourites and for the vote.
Very warm regards,
Ian in Sydney
Excellent Nighshot Ian. I dont know the opera house at this light, but it is fantastic. And the moon is shining too.
Thanks Martin. It is a joy to share such an image with you for the SOH is a very special icon of beauty and culture, and to see it being illuminated as a reminder to the nation of the cost and idiocy of war makes it an important symbol of peace for me. The occasion for the red illumination was Remembrance Day 11 November, which recalls the loss of blood in the fields of Flanders when many boys from Germany, Australia, England, Canada etc etc were wasted. I believe the equivalent day is Volkstrauertag in Germany.
Ian, Good day! Fantastic colour you have caught! Olga
Thanks Olga. I was there again yesterday, but didn't take any photos this time, but everyone in the group I was guiding started taking pictures as soon as they saw it in the distance and then I had to drag them away. It is a special place, and when lit like this it becomes something from beyond our world!
