Sydney Harbor Bridge

Sydney Harbor Bridge
You can not really NOT take a good photograph of Sydney Harbor Bridge. The dramatic view of the bridge, the harbour, and the nearby Sydney Opera House is an iconic image of both Sydney and Australia. The bridge is nicknamed "The Coathanger" because of its arch-based design. More on Wiki

The tiny weeny shapes that you see on the left corner top of the arch are tourists who are taken up the bridge for a climb of their life time. Next Sydney Opera House perhaps :-)

Lovely...stunning picture of the mega structure. Good work, Mayank:)

As good an exposure of "The Coathanger" as it can be. The monochrome treatment is exceptional. Is the vignetting intentional?

mayankpandey said...

Used a Lightroom preset. A bit overdone i agree. I think even the original shot had some. No like vignette?

Kaushal said...

Hey Mayank. Nice composition. Love the tiny people:) I just feel that there are too many blocked shadow areas - probably caused by the preset. Not sure if you could open them a bit to reveal more detail.

mayankpandey said...

Yep - the presets probably do not work on relevant scale. I should have corrected the same. Thanks for feedback Kaushal.

As usual a different angle, different perspective.

Thanks how do you like the Opera house.

Thanks. There is not much of processing here though - selective contrast, WB and hues. Glad you liked it.
