This was taken right on the Yarra River and opposite Federation Square. A long exposure of the Ferris Wheel and a Yarra party boat on the water made it an epic shot. The party boat is hard to see due to little light, but the small amount of light that was picked up by my sensor was the glow flickering off the water’s surface, which made for an awesome effect :) !
The streets of Melbourne are full of life and photogenic material, I advise you to explore your city more especially at night. There were a couple of fire twirlers along Southbank and as you can see in the shots below they make for an excellent long exposure photograph :P !
This is another angle of the Petronas Towers looking up, and the other building next to it which is a little annoying because it makes the twin towers look not so huge, but they’re still massive! To photograph from this angle I had to lie down on the ground and look up at my camera sitting on the tripod and guess the composition, fortunately with digital you can just fire away not worry about wasting film.
Last September, while I was walking around Paris, France admiring their historical churches and buildings, I came across this really nice church unfortunately it was covered with scaffolding as usual with all these really old European buildings, under reconstruction. I noticed the long sun-rays coming in through the windows and thought it was an interesting shot. So, I attempted to get them in full, but cameras are not as advanced as our eyes so it didn’t appear the same, however with the use of HDR software I’ve been able to get a better picture :) .
