Opera House

Opera House

Possibly the most photographed building in Australia, the Opera House is a staple of the city-scape. The hostel I stayed at in downtown Sydney offered a free tour walking around the city, and one stop landed us here, across “Farm Cove” in the Royal Botanical Gardens.  A storm was blowing in, so the clouds above the looked extra ominous.  Shortly after this shot, it began to rain, and somehow a few of us ended up separated and wandering around.  Apparently we didn’t miss anything, and managed to make it back to the hostel before the rest of the group.  Works for me.

One thing I like about this angle is how the shape of the Opera House is defined by the bridge.

I know I did a similar photo to this one before, but recently I’ve been feeling reminiscent of my old photos, wishing I had known some of the things that I know now, techniques I’ve built over many glorious attempts.  I like this one because it’s much closer to the bridge and opera house than the prior, and the colors seem to be more provocative.  There is a crazy amount of alterations that can be done when playing with the RAW files, more than I would want to get into in this post, but believe me, my feelings are directly portrayed in the way the final photo comes out.
