This of course is our Opera House taken earlier in the year during the Sydney Light Show. Due to the time difference, New Zealand and Australia will be celebrating New Year's Eve a little earlier than the rest of the world, so I take this opportunity to wish you a very happy 2013, full of good health, lots of laughter and love. And of course heaps of photos and travels.

Lovely post of this well-known building taken during the night. Like the strong contrast achieved between the architecture and the sky. The visual effect is really attractive. Well done and all the best in 2013!

Spectacular night capture, perfect for this festive occasion.
I wish you all the best for the new year!
mirosu (5507) 2012-12-31 3:15
Yes I spent few marvelous days in Sydney. I enjoyed every minute, whether in the city, on the ferry, on the beach or in the pub (you have a very good beer there).
I only don't understand why I was not able to ger such excellent colors on the opera house. I think I must accept your offer and to do a Sydney photo tour with your company during my next visit (but this can take a longer time).
I love this photo with such a nice color tone not only on the opera house roof but also on the, very quiet, sea water. Excellent shot. Bravo!!
krzychu30 (8797) 2012-12-31 3:26
WOW,the Opera House looks here really awesome illuminated by so beauitful lights.And I bet in few hours there will be great fireworks:)
I think you will be one of the first of TE members who will welcome New Year.
I Wish You a wonderful New Year!
timecapturer (30226) 2012-12-31 3:41
iconic buiding seen in a different light and stunningly effective too! Would love to see this place for real, but alas it is still only a pipe-dream. Ho Hum!
All the very best for 2013 - wishing you and yours wealth, health and happiness. Brian.

The famous Opera House which in change of year fireworks color the sky and impress everyone on the eart. I wish my next trip is on Sydney.
Happy new year and best wishes,
Sergiom (39122) 2012-12-31 5:57
A spectacular picture to end the year. You already cross to the new year as i write this note. Probably you saw the firework on the bridge you lucky you.
Have a great 2013
ourania (12287) 2012-12-31 6:42
Ciao cara Lisa,
molto belli i motivi dinamici e luminosi che spiccano sopra l' interiore caloroso e contro l' ambiente scuro della notte. E' come la luce avesse dato forma al edifizio dipingendolo su una tela nera. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti ed auguri per un buonissimo anno pieno di Amore, Salute e Gioia!

Happy New Year 2013... Lisa,
Beautiful composition, beautiful colors, well framed and night of symbol Sydney view detail of image well POV and an excellent DOF. I really like it. Awesome shot. Thank you.
All the best and Happy New Year 2013 to You and Your Family,
tyro (13021) 2012-12-31 9:07
Ciao cara Lisa,
By now, of course, you will be in 2013! We still have seven hours to go.
As always, a wonderful and different view of the iconic Opera House with lovely lighting and a fabulous light on the sea, smoothed by your long exposure. Good composition, colours and fabulous details and sharpness.
May I wish you and yours a Wonderfully Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!
abmdsudi (26215) 2012-12-31 10:06
I have never seen such an effect Lisa, did you paint the 'sails' green! this is indeed creativefull of vision. I think your decision is wise to avoid competing of interest and this is not usual that comes to mind. The foreground blur is exciting to achive this effect while attention is still drawn to the strunning green sails . Enjoy your ideas and creativity and here you paint with light and colour with striking contrast. Mouth watering indeed :))
Wishing You and Yours the Very Best for 2013 and Take Care of Your Health Always
macjake (39207) 2012-12-31 10:48
I wish I could have also had an opportunity to photograph one of our Iconic subjects in Vancouver!

Of course Tosca and I wish you and your loved ones all the best in 2013. Any new years resolutions? any major plans?

Bonsoir chère Lisa,
Très beau regard sur ce fameux Opera House en baie de Sydney. Adieu 2012. Le monde a commencé à entrer dans la nouvelle année!
Meilleurs voeux pour 2013 à toi, ainsi qu’à tes proches.

Thank you very much!
Wonderful image. Well composed.
Here, in India we mourn the recent brutal murder of a young girl in Delhi we call the "Delhi braveheart". Let us hope for a peaceful future for the world we live in....
I wish you a happy, peaceful and fulfilling New Year 2013!

Back from a few days skiing in the alps, I wish you and your loved ones a very happy new year, may it bring lots of joy, happiness and tons of interesting travels to you.
Funny, I expected a picture of the famous Sidney harbor new years fireworks here, but this is equally stunning. Great colors on the opera house.
karacabeylis (1275) 2013-01-01 7:39
i remember to have said before that i like to watch that wonderful architecture thru yr shots. happy new year again!
Noel_Byrne (7259) 2013-01-01 9:18
A hapy new year to you and yours also. I really believe that there is no place in the world quite like Sydney to watch the new year roll in. Here in Ireland, at lunch time, we watched the fireworks in Sydney, and its such a canvass to hold the show against. The building never ceases to amaze me. Beautiful shot to celebrate lucky number 2013.
All the best to you and yours!
jemaflor (68837) 2013-01-01 11:49
Nice view, a nightshot well managed, light and reflections are superb for this interesting architectural presentation.
Bonne année 2013 !
maloutim (8590) 2013-01-04 23:56
Grazie tante per tui auguri di Buon Anno Nuovo.
Buon Anno a ti, buona salute, felicità con un sacco di foto meravigliose e molti viaggi in Italia o altrove.
Ottima foto nìtida dell'Opera illuminato d'un bello colore turchese.
Eccellente composizione con il contrasto fra l'edificio illuminato e la noche scura.
Grazie per condividere. Cari Saluti.
mkamionka (24469) 2013-01-05 23:26
I am always slow and late with the wishes so I read your note with a delay :)
Very original capture of the opera house. Interesting colors and shapes subtly reflected in the water.
The geometry is emphasized by the black sky as a background.
Very well done.
And one more time: Happy New Year!!
EstelleJ (921) 2013-02-28 12:52
I had no idea they did light shows on the famous Sydney Opera House. But looking at this futuristic beautiful structure with those white "sails" a light show is definitely a great idea for a grand spectacle.
That's why I like this site - always learning something new from it.
