Vivid City Panoramas…

by on Jun.06, 2013, under Life, Photography

I took a couple panorama sets whilst out with Ana Andres at Vivid Sydney.

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

It was hard to find a location which would show the view I was envisaging in my mind and including the elements in the scene like I’d hoped – unfortunately neither of these do that vision justice but were the best I had on offer at the locations I was able to get to.

I headed around to the eastern side of the Sydney Opera House hoping that it may just have been lit up with a vivid display like it had a couple of years ago – alas it was bare but the complete lack of people on the forecourt in front of the house allowed me to get reasonably close with my ultra wide and shoot this seven (7) frame stitched panorama which takes in an approx 180 degree view with the giant sails looming overhead and the lit buildings of Sydney city and circular quay in the background

This is from the steps which get you up onto the deck of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and allow a more than 180 degree panoramic view from the bridge in the distance around past the Opera House and through circular quay to the lit up buildings of the city up close on the right

    You have great creative imagination, your photos are very-very different than other VIVID’s, you can beat competition easily. Really outstanding job performance – congratulations !!! You do love what you do, it’ hard not to notice that. I’d like to encourage you to do similar magic with other topics, Sydney suburbs and its people, it’s a great potential.

    The only problem – it was hard to find you: Vivid City Panoramas… « Rodney Campbell’s Blog Rodney …, so how can people get to your other photos?
