A great view of the skyline of Sydney under the bridge.
Also the most famous building, the Opera House, is included in this early blue hour.
The overcast sky makes an excellent backdrop and the flag on top is a small but beautiful element.
Best regards, Paul

ours not eat to create a new view of icons this famous but you have done out here, this is a brilliant view. Love how you composed the city beneath the bridgeand included the famous opera house. The color saturation and contrast is really appealing too.
have a good weekend

one day I will see this famous landmark for real. But until then I will just have to admire and enjoy shots like this one. Iconic OZ and captured superbly. Happy memories obviously.
Enjoy your weekend - B.

A splendid wide angle view of this unmistakeable scene with the passing boat adding the finishing touch. Perfectly exposed and with superb colours and clarity. I look forward to seeing it in the flesh:-)

Your image does justice to the bridge and the view of the city and iconic Opera House beyond. In the '60s Sydney had the bridge but not much else of major tourist interest to attract visitors form overseas, but I guess travel at that time was more difficult anyway. For overseas visitors now, Sydney is a magical place whether you like to do touristy things or not. Great shot.

Seen many times in picture this well known bridge, and you've contributed a most pleasing rendition with some lovely soft light to accent the entire scene. The timing for this is also a key factor, catching the transition from day to night has enhanced the city and opera house features. More importantly than any technical details though, is the fact this has a strong association for you with time spent in the company of good friends and/or family. Of course, it's also a bonus to have come away with a super photo! :) Really well done. Have a wonderful weekend. Take care.

A fantastic view of the bridge in Sydney and probably it was the time of evening. Good combination between foreground and background - bridge and modern structure with a blue skyline. Very good contrast, POV and color.
with warm regards and have a nice weekend.

A great evening shot, lovely light management. Good POV. I think I stood in the same spot, as probably a lot have. TFS.

This is a less commonly chosen POV, but a great way of presenting the bridge and the Opera House, with lovely evening sun reflected on parts of the bridge. Very well composed. Always wonderful to have great company to share such views and moments.

This is a very impressive composition. The iconic bridge makes a bold diagonal lie across the view, with the even more iconic Opera seen below. The Opera is quite well balanced by the ferry/yacht close to the bridge. The city skyline fills a good portion of the view and the nicely shaped clouds fill the rest. There is a very pleasant dominance of blue and grey tones making this photo almost monochrome.

This is a great view of the Sydney harbor framed nicely by the harbor bridge. The light management is nice blending the natural and artificial lighting to create a nice scene.

yes, this is on everybody's to shoot list in Sydney, and there's an an easy reason to see why.
love the perspective, love the way the clouds seem to be pushing down on the city below and I just enjoy the scene as a whole.
lucky you :)

Creative , to me, way to present skyline of Sydney and the famous opera building, at the back of the imposing bridge
Good color and some touch of red showing night is cumming
Well done, regards

What a lovely reminder of that special time, one I will never forget. I love the purplish/blue hues, not something we often see, as it is usually very sunny and/or cloudless. The first sprinkle of city lights are a lovely contrast and tell a local that this is the beginning of Blue Hour.
I hope you and G are well, big hugs to you both
