yawn The final burn, whilst waiting for +Rodney Campbell to nail his last shot I whacked on +Cameron Fong 24-70 f2.8 lens (thanks mate) and popped out a final, cliche SOH and SHB shot

There was some nice tonal changes as the twilight was really kicking in and the final dirty red of the smoky sunset was disappearing.

The Natural world meets the City

Sydney Skyline on a smoky sunday afternoon. The super low tide gives one great access to some slightly out of the ordinary shots of Sydney Harbour and the Sydney Opera house. 180 seconds for the water, taken from Mrs Macquarie's Chair.

Can you guess how many people were taking photos today at Mrs Mac's Chair? buckets loads, from ipads to canon 400mm-er's everything was there hanging out

Myself and +Rodney Campbell caught up to try and see what the smoke haze over the city would look like at sunset, in doing so we made a visit to the nearby drink/refreshment bar which had a few postcards of the view nearby, so, in the spirit of a particular impossible postcard here is the following panorama.

Good to see +Cameron Fong out today as well. +Suren J was out tending his herd of fresh krill.

i gotta say HDRefex Pro 2 works pretty good on a single image – not quite what I would normally do to a image, however for 3 clicks its certainly a good result and I can see why so many peeps are using it, +Dave Tomek comes to mind

3 shot panorama with a 4 year old on my shoulders, hows that for multitasking?
The only thing that would make it better would be for +Google and +Nik Photography to update the +My Nikon Life captureNX plugins ;)

Sydney Park Panorama – what I love about this view is you can see some many facets of the inner west from here. From the Alpha house in Newtown to the Redfern blocks to UNSW and of course the CBD skyline (just the way I like it, a long way away :) )

The many shades of Tamarama

I am finding that my Seascape sessions are no longer complete without some kind of x-tych. Often images that are not strong enough to hold themselves up really shine in concert with others.

Thats making the best of mediocre images for ya :)

View large, if at all.

Thanks to +Suren J and +Rodney Campbell for the company.
