Opera House - not a tourist's perspective
Lens: DA 18-135mm Camera: K-30 Photo Location: Sydney, Australia 
Posted By: ausmoose, 11-18-2014, 11:34 PM

Life has been super hectic so I haven't been able to post for a while, but here goes.

On the weekend, I went to the city. As in Sydney. I haven't actually been near the Opera House after I got my camera (unless you count two days after) just over a year ago, so it was interesting to be able to take a few shots on Sunday. I couldn't take a lot, because I had a group of non-photographers with me, but I tried exploring some different perspectives nevertheless.

The mono one instantly gave me a 1970s feel.

Thanks goosey. If I'm ever near the Opera House when it's darker then I might try a longer shutter speed - in broad daylight that's pretty much impossible.

its possible in bright day light- you need a neutral density filter and higher f stop.

Nice shots, a bit different from the typical tourist Sydney photos. Good eye!
