Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Heaven (Basic Editing)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM for Nikon
Location: Sydney Harbour, Australia
Date: Dec 6, 2007
Aperture: F11
ISO: 400
Shutter: 18 seconds
Galleries: Cityscape, Panoramic
Date Uploaded: Dec 7, 2007

THE IMAGE: I know it's a long shot, but I like the image and thought it might work. I propped the camera on a pier post and hoped it would not fall in the water while I waited 18 seconds. The pier was actually moving, but the results were terrific. It was about 30 minutes after sunset.

THE EDIT: Levels, Saturation, Noise Ninja, Colour Balance

PREDICTION: Some will criticise the composition, and others the relevency to the challenge: 6.1

I love that time of night, one of my favorites for getting that ambient light.
It looks like that wood? in the foreground is glowing.

Nice. I believe this photo, this shot, would look better in a bright blue sky for this challenge. When I hear "heaven" somehow I imagine brighter place. Although lights and shadow here very nice... makes it a very good photo overall :)

nice composition

Nice perspective. Perhaps a bit too much water here, and the over saturation is a little over done, but some like it that way. Problem with your highlights is that they are overexposed. the bridge's detail is lost.
