A truly elegant photo, very well composed and exposed!

Ian Stehbens on November 16, 2007

Thanks for the affirmation. When a compliment comes from such a competent photographer as you Marilyn, it is indeed valued. This was taken on my first night shoot with my digital - there's a companion pic of the Opera House, taken that night, on Panoramio and that one has become my most popular pic in Google Earth. Like you, I am really enjoying my hobby.

you capture your images well

Ian Stehbens on October 30, 2008

Thankyou arabique for your compliments. I also noted Richard Whetton's closeup images of the Opera House, which are very good. Our Sydney presents us with many wonderful opportunities for landscape photography. Let us keep sharing it with the world of Panoramio friends.

Thank you Ricardo. It is a beautiful harbour, especially at night, and the Opera House is something very special.
