I have always loved visiting the beautiful city of Sydney, and this recent weekend was certainly no exception. Armed with my 5DSR I was keen to capture some highly detailed panoramas of Danish architect Jorn Utzon’s iconic Opera House, as well as trying my hand at some long exposure images. While I did manage a few LE’s, I have not yet found the time to really sit down and process them. Indeed I still have a backlog of personal files from my Adelaide trip to sink my teeth into as well, but I did at least manage to assemble the following files.
There really are two good vantage points that are freely accessible for capturing the Opera House and Harbour Bridge (besides paying fro a hotel room with a view), and the on the first night in Sydney we wandered over to Mrs Macquaires Point, whereby I took a number of detail and panoramic shots.
On the second night we walked over the Harbour Bridge towards Milsons Point and Jeffreys Street in order to create the multi-image panorama below.
Walking across the bridge, I stopped momentarily to capture this panorama below; while it does offer a superb vantage point, the bridge is somewhat less useful for night or dusk shots due to the vibrations caused by the incessant traffic.
During the day we walked around Bronte beach and followed the path to world famous Bondi beach, grabbing some surfing shots as we went..
Another panoramic view from Mrs Macquaries Point…
Once again the 5DSR performed flawlessly, although I did have a few more slightly out of focus images that I would have from the 5D Mk III; it really is a demanding camera, but so utterly rewarding with perfect technique!
