Sydney Skyline

Description:
This is what Sydney looks like (from the 17th floor of the Mercure) on an average night. Actually, the Centerpoint tower doesn't usually glow on an average night. Its only like that for two weeks after the New Year's Eve celebrations.

Also, I only noticed this after I've uploaded my photos into my PC but the buildings are slanted. I didn't mean for it to be that way but I don't hate it either =)


Notes:
This photo was taken on the 17th floor of the Grand Mercure in Darling Harbour. Nice place to stay if you're ever in town :w00t: I used my tripod for this.

Resizing and sharpness adjustment done in Photoshop.


Randomness:
It was crazy windy when I took this photo :omfg:

Not a drama, it's easy to seewhy so many people have collected this shot. This is your second one of Sydney that has dropped my jaw. Really brilliant.

Holy crap :omfg: I didn't even realise it had 89 +favs, that probably all happened during the 3+ years I wasn't so active on dA. I thought maybe it had 12 or something :slow: I actually like it a lot better than the other one I took that night that got a DD.

Nice shot, however the amount of smog in the sky is almost depressing.

This is really good.

How long was the exposure time?
