This was taken on the same evening as my previous upload on an evening in the best of company.
Luna Park first opened in 1935 and has since become an outstanding and important feature of Sydney’s Harbour foreshore. Located near the northern pylon of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Face and Towers of Luna Park have become iconic to the people of Sydney, and the Park itself synonymous with fun.

A great capture of the Luna Park's smiling face - the colours and lights really stand out here against the blue hour sky. I might post a shot of Sydney Lunapark's cousin from Melbourne in the near future!

Hi dear Les
I remember exactly when you took this and really like those deep denim blue tones in the sky. You timed it well. The colours are striking and the images is beautifully exposed and sharp. An excellent image that brings back great memories of a fun night.

Well this is a new face of Australia, for me, and a very happy face.
I love that we are beginning our appraisal of the shot by sharing a photograph with another photographer. You have achieved a great sense of depth, fine sharpness and a mood to uplift the spirit.
My warm regards,

Hello Leslie - I think this entrance is well favoured as a subject but your blue-hour shot adds a sophistication to the funfair subject. It looks far less kitschy and mush more attractive here. Excellent light management and very good detail. Did you go on any rides? Warm regards rosemary

A big smiling face to greet everyone who wants to come and see, well enhanced by the blue hour sky.

Seems you were not the only one taking photos there:)!
This entrance is really funny and here you got a beautiful blue sky also. Good composition with the wheel in background and photographer in action!

This is a great colorful photo of an iconic place. Nice dark blue sky and wonderful colors and sharpness. Good to have the Ferris wheel in the background, giving a hint of the fun to be had once you get swallowed up by the big face.

First, I want to thank you for the comment on my portrait of Lawrence Ferlinghetti. After reviewing your portfolio here, I am honored to have your critiques at any time.
I wanted to comment on this foto because I have always been interested in shooting fotos with mixed light sources. "In the old days," exposing correctly for film was very tricky, and we had to resort to bracketing if we wanted a decent chance at a successful shot.
Digital technology has made that task somewhat easier, but it remains a challenge, and I believe that the first step is for the photographer to recognize when the light sources are more-or-less balanced, i.e., there is not one dominant source. I've always thought that this could perhaps be learned, but it is more likely an innate sense.
It is obvious from this foto that you have that innate talent!
Have a great evening!
