Default Bondi Beach Sunrise

I got the opportunity to visit this beautiful country and took full advantage. I have posted some of these on flickr but am waiting to unveil the rest.

Cheers and thanks for looking

These are excellent. Very difficult to pic an favorite. I really love the opera house.
The sunset is mind blowing, amazing colors.
The fountain is awesome. Love the green color and the water flow.

Supamsp, that is what HDR is supposed to look like. Excellent work! And you made our country's landmarks look incredible!

Wow, the second picture is stunning! I would frame that!
Could you elaborate on the process you took to achieve this picture?

Those are fantastic. NO way to pick a favorite among them; all three would be hanging on my wall. Print-frame-hang, for sure.

I take 3-5 exposures usually and tonemap in dynamic photo hdr by mediachance. I've just never felt right with photomatix, I uesd it for a while but mediachance was a breath of fresh air.

I also do a little tweaking in lightoom.

Hdr is a delicate process you have to feel around until you get the finished product that you want. I think it took me a few months until I started seeing results that I liked. Definately an acquirred taste

Yeah, those 20+ hour flights and stop overs suck!

Beautiful shots of the Opera house. Did you spend a night in the Opera bar?
