Having failed to capture some decent sunset pictures the other evening (as noted in the later entries to this post), I decided to go for sunrise instead.

OK, I cheated a little bit - the white balance is set to 'daylight fluorescent', which makes it even more golden looking.

I like #2 best with the sun behind the buildings. Have you thought about lifting the shadows just a touch to bring back some detail in the buildings?


Still trying.

I did try it, but wasn't sure about it.  As you've asked, I will give it another try.

  Here we go...

Is that what you were thinking of or even lighter?  My thought is that it isn't quite as strong an image, but I can understand that there is a large area of black in there too which may not appeal.  Perhaps a tighter crop like the other picture is needed,  but then I'd loose the cranes and I only had one lens with me and couldn't get them in from the other side of the river.

Luc, Dallas & Mike, you might have convinced me.  The lighter one is growing on me.

I also like the second image, but with the buildings brightened only as much like the first image.

 

The shapes of the buildings, especially the ones with the cranes on top of them, look attractive, but the clearly visible details of the facades makes the image a bit too busy for me.

 

I also prefer the original panoramic framing of the second image (with the treatment mentioned above).

      Another one of the Old Melbourne Series.  This is the original from the State Library collection, dated around 1858.  You can just make out the water fall that was the reason for Melbourne's location - fresh water above the falls and access to the bay and onto the ocean below the fall.  A little time later some one had the cleaver idea of dynamiting the falls so they could get boats further up river, but so could the salt water from the bay.  By 1890, the construction of Queens Bridge restricted the height of vessels travelling any further upriver.

      Probably a little too far to the left from the original, but there is now a flower bed, flagpole and railway viaduct that make creating a good copy difficult.

      I've waited months to get this shot - there is a 3-4 week period twice a year when things line up!  Same spot up on Studley Park Road that I have used previously.  I was hoping desperately that the cloud didn't thicken as I drove over.

      I might post a few more once I get through reviewing them.
