This is another of the city's landmarks which was illuminated during the Vivid Sydney Lightshow. This is the Museum of Contemporary Art, situated on Circular Quay opposite the Opera House. The light trail you see in the foreground is the result of 2 little guys running in front of the camera with fluorescent light tubes.

une superbe photo de nuit avec des effets de lumière très agréables donnant un bon résultat graphique.
C'est bien fait

I had a flashback of retro memories of my 'hippie period' with your flourescent night scene. The multi colored flowing lights in the foreground complement the classical Museum's flood lighting.
A wonderful way to showcase the Land of Oz.

Did you have to pay the little guys or where they part of the show:-) Whatever, they were very effective and contribute to the success of the composition. Well exposed and pin sharp as usual. I like the colour contrasts and the ghostly silhouettes. What I would really like to know is how you determine the f stop and the shutter speed for your night pictures; I can't really seem to get the hang of them.

vedo che ti sei fatta aiutare dai ragazzi per dare più colore all'immagine....
Casuale o no, il risultato è accattivante e pieno di vita.

Wow...whether planned or not, those two little buggers sure created one awesome effect on this already impressive, vivid night time display. Even with all of the punchy colors and modern facades, it's the spooky silhouettes scattered about that catch my eye...almost like more ghostly apparitions to haunt your efforts. :) You must have had quite a fun time with the city on neon colored overdrive, I've really enjoyed seeing your pictures here and on FB. A smaller effect here, but the clouds above sure aid in the overall atmosphere too. Another beauty mate. Have a great afternoon. Take it easy.
Cheers from rusty, dusty desert,

Spectacular night scene in great colors! A fine artistic result of your camera play.
Enjoy a nice day.

Still on low light mood! That's pretty cool Psychedelic Night to my eyes!
filled by the myriad of riotous colours! Like this very much - its different and I'd say very well spotted taken at a ludicrously low shutter speed producing a fine visual impact and excellent bit of processing. I could hardly miss seeing this! Very smartly done as always, My congrats

Seems like that there is a lot of play with lights and colors in Australia these days. A pleasure for the eyes and also for the photographs. I like this one a lot.
Have a nice day

Woooooooo..... my eyes just follow those light trails over and back, over and back, over and back...
I am under your control....
haha, brilliant effect, and what timing for you to capture these trails in front of this epic Batman inspired building! I think this would look perfectly at home in Gotham, except of course for all the beautiful vivid colors. Did you time it for the little people with the lights, or was that a happy coinkydink? Beautiful result whatever it was, Gotham has never looked so neon!
Have a good week.

Hello Lisa - The FG dazzle is a wonderfully fluid addition to the illuminated architecture adding dynamism and 'life' to your shot.
I want to play with light tubes too!
Keep shining dear Lisa

Hi Lisa, fantastic view of this beautiful lit Sydney. I can imagine how exciting is to see all this. We had in Warsaw only one palace with such a light show and it was also nice to see. The guys running with the lihght tubes made a good job :). Fantastic night shot.

Un caro saluto a tutta la famiglia.

Nice light effect with the long exp., a fine creative shot.
Marvelous taken the lightshow on the museum facade, vivid it is.
Enjoy yopur weekend,

amazing impression, there is so much light and color here which adds a nice touch to the otherwise rectangular structure. Also silhouettes of people add a nice touch not disturbing the scene.

What a wonderful picture ! So colourful, so vivid, so joyful. The fluorescent trails in the foreground really adds some great attraction. It makes me think of the Fête des Lumières in Lyon.
CLODO (30597) 2014-07-26 10:11
I hope you've congratulated the 2 boys, because the image is so attractive thanks to the winding colored lines at the BG. It's a good presentation for this night picture of Sydney's illuminations.
have a good sunday
