The Sydney waterfront view from the ferry boat to the Zoo.
I'm a big zoo fan, and got to see more wallabies, koala bears (are they really bears?) and more tropical birds than other zoos.
And not being a fan of crowded cities and noisy hotels, I stayed about 60 kilometers away at night in a cabin in Oz's Blue Mountains. Though I did enjoy strolling around the harbor front during the day.

Like this way to present panoramic from cities, if possible with water at the front, here I supposed it was taken from the ferry
Well done, the capture and to stay away of crows of people

What a view! Really superb one taken from a very unique and well selected POV. The panorama format works pretty well here. TFS!

nice the panoramic view of Sydney waterfront that looks like as a postcard.I like the excellent light and colour management as the beauty and the clarity of the scene.

original capture of Sydney waterfront and famous opera. From this side, it almost looks as Manhattan.
I was in zoo in Sydney but in town and I didn't like it. Much nicer were sanctuaries near Adelaide and Brisbane, when the animals were in big area and you could give hand to the kangaroos or have koala in arms.
I prefer staying just in the center of the towns, to see also night life (outside the bars, of course :))
Koalas are not bears. They are not placental mammals, but marsupials, which means that their young are born immature & they develop further in the safety of a pouch. And pandas aren't bears either.
Warm regards Malgo

Nah they're not bears - they're marsupials. Cute but oh so stinky. Hey great shot of the skyline. It's amazing how drastically it's changed in the last decade. I like the panorama cut, the colours and how you handled the strong light.

A very nicely detailed shot. I also enjoyed Darling Harbour rather than the City.

That sounds just the thing for me - staying away from noisy, crowded (and probably very expensive) hotels and escaping to the country for some peace and quiet!
This is a very fine panoramic view of Sydney's waterfront with lovely light and colours and excellent details and sharpness - especially when viewed at its original size of 800 pixels wide: unfortunately the "shrinking" done by the "new" version of TE makes it a good deal less sharp and clear.

classic view of this beautiful city. You took it with good sharpness and nicely saturated colors. The POV allowed good and wide perspective and the Opera building has been placed strategically in the composition.
Nice photo, thanks for sharing.

Ray, this is considered a great postcard...a nice format and a fantastic panoramic view of a very famous waterfront...nicely done!!
to answer to your question on my last post....yes, there is a path to walk down, it takes about 3 hours...

very good photo and good comment, unfortunately a bit out of focus
Wish you a nice day

I have never perceived Sydney Opera House, in this way before! You have given us a completely different take on the scene! From left to right, the skyscrapers dominate the skyline and then, as you move to the Opera House, it appears to be falling like a line of dominoes!
The wake of the boat helps to create a good sense of depth.
Have a lovely day,
