Surfer's Paradise, Gold Coast, QLD, Australia

I'm back from the Easter holidays. Spent a few days on Gold Coast in Queensland. This is Surfer's Paradise after sunset. View from Q1 building – the tallest residential building in Southern Hemisphere.

Had to use thick black cloth to cover camera and lens to eliminate reflections in the window. Used duct tape to attach the cloth to the window. It was quite funny. I was looking like the old photographer – camera and head covered with the cloth.

    Great work, mate! I like the vibrant colours…

    It’s fairly difficult to get photos without reflections up there, so the cloth + duct tape idea is a good one. I wish I had have thought of it when I was up there last time.

    Great shot Ilya, I love it.

    ” The tallest living building in the Southern Hemisphere” …. is there a taller dead one? (:

    Beau, a couple of years ago I was shooting in Seoul, Korea from their UHF/VHF tower and wasn’t able to elimitate reflections with polarizer filter and suddenly my wife step aside and blocked some light. I said: “A-ha!!!! Eureka!!!!” And we opened two umbrellas. They worked perfectly. After that I decided to make a “special large and soft” blend from a black cloth. But I’m too lazy for that so I actually attached the cloth with duct tape. :-)

    Merv, ha-ha-ha!!! Good one! Sure I had to say “residential”.

    I’m sure you must have got some strange looks from others, but it was worth the effort.

    Hi Ilya

    Love the exposure on this shot, the colours just leap off the screen. Very nice.

    Beautiful long exposure. The colors are magnificent. Such a stunning shot.

    Thanks, folks!!!

    Kevin, I thought I might look like a terrorist and being arrested by security. :-) But everything went fine. Looks like they get used to strange people with tripods and big backpacks. :-)

    Wow this is an amazing picture! I really love the colours.

    Nice Picture, I assume the Gold Coast, Q1. Also I’d like to try the cloth, to eliminate reflections. Your photography looks great.
