A 3 minute plus exposure here, sure the signs are blown out but I like the sky and the star and the light on the river.

ya, I like this one much better. The lighting is wonderful. I still want some breathing room, I think. You managed both horizontal and vertical levels this time. ;)

Love it except for the mystery light streak near the tallest building. The reflection is incredible!

Great shot. Love the colours and the slow shutter speed. Pity about the light scratch, no doubt caused by an aircraft moving overhead. I have suffered from this so many times in a good photo. Luckily, outside the challenge you can clone it out and you will be left with a great shot of Perth city. 8

I was just saying to my wife, I have been to every Australian Capital city except Perth...she has been there 5 times. I might need to catch the red eye flight and come over...especially after seeing this...

nice colours but perhaps a bit overexposed.
