Hi Folks,

browsing through my collections, I found this image which I think suits to this week's Friday theme.

Needless to mention more about this iconic landmark and one of the most beautiful structures and an architectural wonder.

This is one of my few nocturnal shots - a 'genre' I am still learning about.

No tripod but the embankment wall was used as one instead.

Thanking you in advance for viewing and your kind words.

Have a great weekend.

Nice photo, good colour and contrast, well done!

Hi Agoes,

this is wonderful shot. Impressive. Technically it is excellent.

Have a good Friday,


this is a splendid night shot.
your details are excellent. good lighting and textures.
this is a first for the skies to be blue at night.
really great. kudoS.

Very nice Agoes. This really stands out. Would this be taken in what is known as the "blue hour"? Love the color of the sky and then the contrasting colors of the well-lit building.
I'm just reading a book about Australia. He talks a bit about this amazing building and the architect - how he was chosen, etc.
Great job.

What a great shot Agose, better than most of the publicity shots I have seen of this building, great light and composition.



Lovely capture of this pretty architectural landmark. The scene has colorful lighting with nice contrasts of warm and cool colors of the night sky. Good post.

Hi Agoes,
This is a stunning shot. I love the colors and the detail in the Opera House. The dark blue sky is the perfect BG for this wonderful place. Nice work.

Isn't it a beautiful artwork, the opera house ?
Very nice captured by you.
I've been there a few years ago, it's amazing.
well done.

Hi Agoes:

Very nice night shot. Beautiful colors. I like the dark blue sky in the background.

Ola Agoes,
Beautiful composition.
Best regards,

Hello Agoes,

This is a fine example for the theme.
This iconic building sets a standard around the world but I have rarely seen it lit up as a night-time shot. This is just beautiful.
It is sharp and detailed.
The floodlights help to define the curves and unusual shapes of the building.
You have composed this well to allow us to enjoy all its beauty against a fine inky-blue sky.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Agoes! What a great shot of that well known architecture. It's very professionnal! Well done, thanks!


Hello Agoes! Amazing work. Famous architecture. Nice lightness. Perfect contrast, ideal sharpness. Great effect. Good luck!

Hoh!!! Patutlah indaaaaa da posting chief sia nampak. Rupanya gambar dari Ostrolia pula. Cantik lagi tuh!! Mungkin kalau ada proper tripod utk handle shutter yang lebih slow to compensate bukaan lebih kici', dapat la efek bintang2 saaana lampu2. apapun, mungkin selera berbeza - yg penting, apa yang sdh ditangkap sini ni pun mimang cukup2 ramuan bah juga sudah.

Crown Princess ada sempat ambil shot malam chief? Dengar2, macam malam ni tau dia last di KK. kempunan la sia nih, lambat sia dengar bah. malam ni inda sempat keluar ni, mau layan masa untuk beliau di rumah.

chief inda' join SJA punya bengkel di Simpang Mengayau next weekend? Mari kita ikut...


A wonderful night capture of an amazing landmark..
Perfect composition, clarity/sharpness and exposure.

Great job Agoes!
