    Nice work Ilya, this view’s been shot so many times it’s become a bit of a cliche, but the foreground element and the skillful use of slow shutter speed elevates it above the norm.

    Was a great weekend of light… did you happen to shoot the sunset rainbow over the city on Sunday? I shot the same sunrise from the Opera House looking at the bridge. Didnt come out as nice as this, should have slowed my shutter speed down. Very nice shot you got here.

    Thanks for feedbacks, guys!

    Kirk, when you will be in Sydney?

  • Ilya Genkin - June 10, 2009 - 6:37 pm

    Kevin, yes, I tried to shoot it differently. I’m glad I managed to do that. It’s actually quite difficult as the opera and the bridge are already photographed from all angles.

    Matt, I was at the Kirribilli at that moment but unfortunately I was a few minutes late and I started shooting when the rainbow was fading out. I also noticed a photographer who was doing a private tuition right under the bridge. I thought it was you. :-)

    Me ha gustado principalmente el efecto seda que has logrado en el agua, buen encuadre.
    El cielo espectacular.
