An evening in Sydney CBD (Part I)
Lens: DA 12-24 Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Sydney, NSW ISO: 80 Shutter Speed: >6s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: Ash, 08-08-2011, 09:39 PM

I had the opportunity to venture around the streets of Sydney recently with K-5, a couple of lenses and a tripod on hand. These were heavy enough, so Pentax again gets my thumbs up for portability and practicality. So here are the scenes I was able to visit that evening and spend time capturing:

Beneath the Harbour Bridge


Sydney skyline


Martin Place


Sydney Arcade


State Library of NSW


More to come later...

Thanks Tracy.
The lighting on the bridge is quite effective for photography.

I think I have seen ypicutres form you of this bridge before. I love this view point Ash. [first image] The sharpness is what stands out along with the lighting on the bridge. JIM

Thanks all.
Jim, this is the first time I've photographed the iconic bridge, but I have a couple others to share in the forthcoming series...
