|Sydneys Sun Sinks Slow, Shines Sparkles & Sets|
Sydney Opera House must be one of the most recognisable images of the modern world - up there with the Eiffel Tower and the Empire State Building - and one of the most photographed.
Not only is it recognisable, it has come to represent 'Australia'.
Although only having been open since 1973, it is as representative of Australia as the pyramids are of Egypt and the Coliseum of Rome.
The Opera House is situated on Bennelong Point, which reaches out into the harbour. The skyline of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the blue water of the harbour and the Sydney Opera House, viewed from a ferry or from the air, is dramatic and unforgettable.
Ironic, perhaps, that this Australian icon - the Opera House with a roof evocative of a ship at full sail - was designed by renowned Danish architect - Jorn Utzon.
Hope you like.

Well I certainly don't recognize the colour of the Opera House Steve! But it's not a bad suggestion for the repaint. It is a beautiful building, and yes, I do like this very much

If one of the most photographed landmark in Australia, you choose to show it to us from an unusual and original point of you. Which is great. I also like the treatment you did on this picture. Well don Steve.
Unusual point of view Steve and the treatment works well.
wow, this is marvelous.
First I don't know what we see here - but now - excellent shot with wonderful colours and forms. It must be amazing to see this, thank you so much for sharing it with us, bye

I have never seen it presented like this - very creative and artistic Steve. With the POV, colours and tones here, it looks like something from outer space. Very nicely done,
