I just happened upon this scene after lunch with my sister, luckily when the light was right. It's an art installation in Sydney city centre celebrating the lost songs of 50 types of birds no longer present in the built up city environment. Here is a link. I was previously unaware of its existence

Wow! I didn't know this was in Sydney. I remember voting o. Wondering where it was (I really liked it too giving it an 8). Congrats on your first ribbon too. Very well deserved.

What a great installation! A bit sad, but fascinating! Congrats on the ribbon, too. (Even sadder when you read why the installation is there.)

A late congrats, John. I had thought I had already commented on how much I liked the design elements and composition. And a ribbon!- the first of many for sure.

This is such a cool installation - I really thought it was the cages of vendors of birds but this is better. Congratulations on the ribbon, John. Your first? I am surprised but so glad you got it.

Yes, you should have ribboned before now, lots of great stuff in your portfolio including this shot. Well seen and captured, and with an iPhone!

Congrats on your first ribbon, John! A fantastic image.
PS If I had commented I would have suggested selective desat on the blue to take away the blue line of the windows.

Thanks everyone, a special moment in my photographic life. Ironic that so much art comes from so much lost, and, with all the gear I have, the iPhone 4 rules the roost.
10/15/2012 01:09:52 AM

This scene does not need the title or the challenge theme. It's a very intriguing capture that stands strong on it's own. So fascinating!
