After more than two weeks spent in Australian outback, I was amazed to see the big city of Melbourne. Andrew and Santo helped us to go to the hotel and although it was already quite late in the evening, we went for a night walk around Yarra River. it was wonderful , thank you guys!! Central Business District (CBD) of Greater Melbourne's metropolitan area looks fabulous in the night. I hope you like it too.
I had no tripod.

Zdravo Malgo. With your photos of Australia i am just realizing what a competent photographer you really are. I would never think photographing from this side of the Yarra and looking at this brilliant result, it has been my loss. Fantastic reflections. You have turned Melbourne into a glamorous city (which it isn't.)Pozdrav. Klaudio.

WOW back at ya! What a great shot! What I like most about this is that most of these kinds of shots on TE are content to just reflect on the water a clear and accurate reflection but yours makes the reflections look like impressionist painting type brush strokes which adds a more original and creative dimension to this. Fantastic image - I love it. Well done.

rewelacyjna nocna panorama Melbourne!4sek bez statywu,ale swietnie sobie poradzilas.Co prawda zdjecie jest lekko poruszone,ale w tym przypadku wyglada jakby ten efekt byl wynikiem obrobki zdjecia w Photoshopie(szczegolnie widoczne jest to na powierzchni wody,ktora wyglada niczym obraz).
Zamierzony czy nie efekt graficzny jest po prostu SUPER!

pieknie wygladaja noca miasta nad brzegami rzek gdzie pieknie odbijaja sie swiatla,pozdrawiam

I suppose you used a wall or a support of some kind for such a slow shutter speed. You didn't need a tripod. This is superb!
Melbourne looks to be aglow in its night finery and as if that wasn't enough, the effect is repeated in the river water.
I would imagine you are reliving every happy memory as you post these shots for us to share!
Have a lovely day,

Hello Malgo,even without a tripod you have managed to keep the camera steady long enough to get the exposure spot on for this spectacular night scene.
The highlight details are stunning and the composition first rate. Very well done.

Piekna gra swiatel, to wlasnie one tworza ta niesamowita kompozycje. Fajny klimat, dobry kadr swietna technika wykonania. Bardzo udane nocne foto...

You are making others jealous and surprised by announcing that you did n't have a tripod to shot. Viewers are sure to burn with envy, with this pride catch of yours. In the absence of tripod, the railings or the bench top or car top can be judiciously used, and the results are awesome.
Water seems to be polished again and again and one feel like skating on the mirror below.
I am sure this shot will inspire the photographers living near by and visiting this part to repeat and Thank You for this different POV.
Cheers for a superb upload, which shall be cherished for long.

Je trouve très spectaculaire cette photo de nuit. Les lumières sont spectaculaires et donnent de très beaux reflets dans les eaux calmes. La ville semble très belle.

A beautifully exposed night time composition with very good colours and sharpness. The lovely reflections are the cherry on the cake.

Ciao Malgorzata, fashinating nocturne shoot with fantastic reflections, superb exposure, splendid light and wonderful bright colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

The reflections here are just beautiful Malgo - they look like brush strokes of light and I could lose myself just staring at them. The very dark sky is perfect here acting as a perfect foil for the stunning cityscape of light. Warm regards Rosemary

no to nocne zdjecie oswietlonych budynkow I jego odbicie powalan na nogi. Piekna praca. Wspanie wykonane zdjecie. Super swiatlo I kolorystyka. Doskonala ostrosc. Bardzo mi sie podoba.
Graal (99446) 2013-07-24 7:50
ale kolorowo tutaj! Piekny obraz z Antypodow. Wielkie miasto z odbiciami swiatel w wodzie. Dobry POV. Piszesz o braku statywu ale chyba aparat na czyms oparlas. Dobra ostrosc na 4 sek. Podoba mi sie.

Robi wrażenie, każdy chciałby mieć taki widok przed obiektywem, pieknie pokazane
bartekp (4746) 2013-07-24 10:24
Wręcz bajkowa kompozycja. Wspaniały kadr, świetne kolory i super jakość.
ourania (35009) 2013-07-24 12:43
this is a marvellous picture. I love its fascinating graphic quality, the way the rich and attractive urban view is laid out in the frame and the accentuated role of the reflections, which are vibrant and mesmerising, an abstract interpretation of the city. The railing on the right introduces a solid perspective that balances the composition and carries some more reflections. The luminous colours are delicious. There's great sharpness and a superbly moderated glow. The tone of the night sky is wonderful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
carlo62 (37153) 2013-07-24 13:51
un trionfo di luci e colori, raddoppiato dai bei riflessi.
Gran bella foto, un'atmosfera molto diversa dall'Australia tutta natura che ci hai mostrato fino a ora.
chrisvek (7001) 2013-07-24 19:15

Spectacular night capture of that amazing scene. It looks almost unreal, very beautiful image.
Have a good day.

wczoraj zabraklo mi smileys a dzisiaj wyslalem juz komentarz do tego zdjecia ale serwer sie zacial. Drugi raz nigdy sie juz nie ma tak wlasciwych slow...
Piekne miejsce pelne czaru i atmosfery. Znakomita jakosc pomimo ze juz jest po blue hour i noc ciemna i ze nie uzywalas statywu. Mysle ze jedno i drugi by troche wzmocnilo efekt np daloby sie wowczas uniknac poreczy. Fantastyczne odbicia bardzo zywe kolory po prostu opad szczeny.

The reflections here are just beautiful, they look like brush strokes of light.
I enjoy of these pleasant picture.
You chose an excellent angle, this cares for depth and perspective.
Wonderful colours and great moment picture.
This is an extraordinarily picture.
Very well done, TFS.
marabu61 (9205) 2013-07-25 6:18
Woha, for a shot without tripod it is amazingly sharp and clear. There is not even any noticable noise as I suppose you had to boost the ISO quite high for a handheld shot here?
The colors are gorgeous, truly a very pleasant composition.
havea great day
macjake (59902) 2013-07-25 9:43
So tell me, which city did you prefer....Melbourne or Sydney? and why? no pressure :)
I often hear that Melbourne is actually more beautiful and perhaps calmer than busy Sydney...but i guess its all subjective right? I'd like to hear your thoughts too.
hard to capture the city at night without a tripod Malgo! haha
I'm not a big fan of the electric blues, but i do loke the dark blacks, the reflections and the yellow honeycomb window-look.
Melbourne looks beautiful, I feel at home here :)
good shot though without the tripod as that bridge deck is pretty sharp!
holmertz (43619) 2013-07-25 10:01
For some reason this picture makes me think of an old hit song, "Bright lights big city". That title sums it up very well. Melbourne looks impressive from this angle where there is so much water to reflect the light from lamps, windows and neon signs. You did this very well without a tripod.
adramad (39770) 2013-07-25 11:44
Fascinating image of this city skyline at night, thanks to the good sharpness can fully appreciate each building with its lighted windows, reflections in the water add great beauty to the composition.
Superb brightness and clarity for optimal viewing an image clearly.
Very well done. I love it.
Have a good day.

Superb foto - czerń nieba gra swiateł odbitych od lustra wody i tych z okien budynków - wspaniała architektura. Znakomicie to wyglada.
Fis2 (88735) 2013-07-27 6:01
Lubie nocne zdjecia.
Kolorystyka i ostrosc super!
ikeharel (61359) 2013-07-28 11:07
A stunning night scene, Malgo.
the 4 sec. exp. enhanced lightened areas on pic. but also gave extra "smoothing" on the reflection part of the image.
Adorable and well managed.

Hi,marvelous night shot,clear and colorful.So much changed from when I lived there many years ago.Best wishes,Wolf.
