For those of you that don't know Sydney all that well, this image was taken from the North Sydney side of the harbour near Luna Park.
The image was taken with the camera set to monochrome so there was no desaturation by way of post processing. PP included smart sharpen, curves and levels.

WooHoo - Thanks everyone for the high scores and great comments....

Very nice photo but....For me this is not a landscape, for me landscape has more to do with nature.
The subject here is the bridge and the city in the background, 4th place comes much closer to Landscape, but hey who am i...
Still a great shot! well done.
