From where I was standing to capture the moments of the Sydney opera house, there stands the glamorous Sydney harbour bridge. I was getting excited when it gets darker and the lights turned on, the bridge turned into a beautiful nightscape for me right after I am done with photographing the opera house! With the fading dark blue sky behind, it provides a clean background for my capture of the bridge. Again, I took long exposure on my tripod with 16-35mm f2.8 L on 5D II.
I have only adjusted the brightness of the whole picture a little to show a bit more of the sky using photoshop. I knew how other tourists took their photos of the opera house as their foreground and the harbour bridge as part of the background. In my own opinion, I do not wish to have such complicated photos with so many objects in as I am not really comfortable with the compositions like that. While I was clicking on my shutter release on the bridge, I realized how beautiful the moon is just across the water on my left where the Park Hyatt hotel stands. It was really mesmerizing for me! Therefore, I composed again another shot on another nightscape to share here.
I was really satisfied with my works and after few shots, I packed up and go as it was really dark at that time. Moreover, it was getting colder, I can’t really stand cold temperature and I made my way back to my car and drove back to my hotel to have my early night rest.
