Vivid Sydney lights up the Harbour and surrounds every May. This is a shot of one of the Opera House's many disguises.

wonderful colorful view from this hall you captured.

A colourful sight. Well captured in this ideally exposed composition. Perfect sharpness with some lovely reflections to boot.
Campari and Prosecco sounds a very interesting combination, just up my street. What proportions do you recommend?

Wonderful colours! You have captured the scene very well, with perfect exposure and composition. The famous opera house stands nice and big in your picture allowing the viewer to fully appreciate all the details.

Howdy Vivid Lisa,
Eye-catching view across the iridescent harbor of the Opera House appearing like giant butterflies perched above a horizontal lavender line.
I would like to see this light show more often than just May, but then the purists would bitch and moan?
Enjoy your autumn Sunday and keep up the fine works,

What do you get when you cross the Sydney opera house with a parrot? Not a joke, I think your capture is the answer! These colors are incredible, so vivid and deep, the blue in particular strikes me as its a tone of blue I rarely seen, and its so deep and royal. Combined with the reds and golds, its an amazing sight. The artists who create this must have a lot of fun dreaming up these displays, and what better canvass could anybody on earth ask for than this! Another beautiful capture, you make me ache to visit your beautiful city. Someday....
Til then, I am honored to share your work and view it from afar.
Have a great Sunday. Tis a bank holiday in Ireland today, woohoo!!!

I liked the funny comparison made by Noel :)
I was rather thinking of a giant very colourful flower.
The famous opera house lends itself very well to surprising and in many ways artistic interpretations.
Best regards, Paul

I love the vibrant colors here! Both the sails of the Opera House, and the water, are awash in color, and standing out brilliantly against the night sky.
By the way, I'm also a big Law & Order fan. I like all three versions of the series, but I've never actually come across them filming here. My sister did once, when they filmed a scene on the Roosevelt Island tram. It's very close to her apartment. :-)

un'altra versione super colorata di questa icona australiana.
Mi sto ripetendo, ma quando pensi di aver visto ogni tipo di versione.....ecco che ne sbuca una nuova e scoprirlo è sempre un piacere.
Salutoni a te e famiglia

Une version plus colorée mais toute aussi attrayante de cet opéra illuminé.

Hi Lisa - This is certainly 'in-your-face' colourful. Do the colours change daily or are they running through a timed programme each evening? I love the light and shade across the water and the sails of the opera house are wonderfully vivid against the inly black sky.
Hope you have a great week my protesting pal!

Wonderful composition of colors you framed. The clarity, colors and lights very well managed. Well done.!!
Sergiom (54421) 2014-06-02 5:10
What a good idea to use the Opera like this. They are doing that in Europe on cathedrals and it is very interesting. I like the colors here, very vibrant.
Have a nice day

Said before and repeat once more, Lisa: Endless POV's and photographic opportunities over this intriguing world-famous edifice.
marvelousely collecte the vivid and superbly-saturated colors.
Perfect 2.5 sec's exp, black sky immaculately clean of 'noise'.
Again, an admirable photo.

Hello dear Lisa,
a great night view, the forms and the details have superb definition, your tight framing has exalted the dynamism of the architecture and the impact of the colours. By eliminating bright or colourful distractions, you made the most of the black backdrop and the contrast it provides, the shadows are suggestive as well. I like very much the richness and brightness of the added colours as well as their subtler versions in the reflections. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Smashing night shot and the explosion of colours!! I'm really impressed with your consummate skill that you have managed to bring out the best in that lens and fantastic to see the vivid impression of the evening strengthened by the famous landmarks. Beauty a bucketful :)

Ciao cara Lisa,
The Opera House's è vestito nei suoi più bei colori per il festival. Splendidi i riflessi nell'acqua. Un altro bellissimo notturno di Sydney. Mi piace molto!
