Spoiled

view large to see the pain only those who do not live in the blues point tower have to suffer
I wonder if anyone asked…"so whats this highrise gonna look like? will it spoil the view of anything in the harbour?……………..like the operahouse or bridge?" 🙂

I will welcome the day that this piece of building (Blues Point Tower) is gutted and filled explosive ready to be brought back down to the earth, then I will come back here take a much much nicer picture 😉

That is unless someone who lives there offers me a spot for New Years Eve 2015 😉 then I might consider retracting my opinion. 😉

In the meantime, when I get a bit more time and my photochop sklills are a bit better, I am gonna clone that building out and see what the view would really look like.

It will also be very interesting to see the view in a few years when the Barangaroo site is complete.

This was the last of only a couple of sneaky shots i managed to fit in before dinner, I would have loved to get a few more images as the blue hour really developed, however reality and kids bath time takes priority 🙂

Pretty easy going image, 6 landscape orientation images stitched together, its one of the few times I have used the LEE 0.6 graduated filter, normally I opt for the stronger 0.9 filter.

As always, I welcome any suggestions, comments and improvements to my photography, they are always warmly welcomed.

  1. very beautiful photo… except… I totally understand your lament for that building. Such a beautiful scene, well balanced and picturesque… except for that thing!

  2. What a magnificent photo and view of the city and bridge. I did put i on large and savored every part of this beautiful set of photos from edge to edge. I've seen many pics of Sydney, the Harbour and Opera House, Darling Harbour,etc but I've never seen a pano like this. I didn't know about the Blues Point Tower until I read your description, but I can certainly see what you are talking about, and agree. This photo should be in a gallery. I would think that many people would appreciate it and want it.

  3. Balls Head rarely dissappoints – some nice pastels forming there mate. That whole family thing just at the best time (photographically speaking) rings a bell 🙂

    I know man.. i was gonna text and tell them don't ya's know its blue hour.. however I thought better of that 😉
    BTW i was gonna try and scope out that jetty down there but ran out of time.. its a fairly steep section of bay there too.

  5. You really do have to question how anyone allowed it to be built in the first place. Melbourne's Shrine of Remembrance (which pales in comparison photogenically) has borderline ridiculous sightline protection to avoid this exact scenario. That said, you've done a marvellous job in spite of it.
