A late afternoon shot with the sun starting to set at left. The horizon is curved because of the 18 mm lens. This is the only public spot in South Perth with an elevated view of the city. The rest of the hill at left is private property with exclusive apartments & expensive condominiums. The Swan River in the bg flows from right to left.
I've tried to correct the over exposure at left in the sky, with partial success. I have no idea what the fg foundation is or was. Will try to look it up in internet or google maps. Taken at around 183 Mill Point Road, east of the Perth Zoo, with Sir James Mitchell Park at right. Another shot I found on Panoramio:

Une bonne prise avec une vue dégagée, les immeubles au loin qui ressemblent à des petits cubes, le tout sous un ciel intéressant avec ses nuages élégants.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

Bonjour, cher Chris,
Très belle vue panoramique avec un très beau ciel, où les nuages s'amusent à se gonfler d'importance.
Le premier plan est intéressant (vestiges particuliers) ?
La composition est très bien présentée.

this is really excellent place for skyline shot.The outcome is delightful.I like not only view of the skyline,but also beautiful foreground with a lot of greenery and this old foundation.The picture has also brilliant colors.And one thing I could´n left,namely these fantastic cloud formations,which make the whole composition even more beautiful and picturesque.
Have a nice day

Good Morning Chris,
You have positioned this well, the terracota floor makes a most attractive f/g point and, by its shape, the whole scene radiates from it, in every direction. You have captured a relaxed, rural mood, before the onset of the city, with the skyscrapers fencing in the river.
Have a great day,
dta (70325) 2012-05-11 2:21
Hello Chris ,
What a great view ! The red square in the FG , the beautiful green park , and the skyscrapers under superb white clouds ... all these elements compose a splendid picture .

A wide view on the city and this park is well maintained

sacimar (26199) 2012-05-11 4:27
this is an excellent image of Perth skyline, I like how the buildings are in line in the back, the point of view is well chosen, nice job,
Have a good weekend,
pierrefonds (59382) 2012-05-11 5:01
The distance between the parkd and the highrise buildings is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the park and of the skyline of Perth in the background. The late afternoon light is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.
Sergiom (65297) 2012-05-11 5:34
L'effet de profondeur que donne cette fortification à l'avant plan ainsi que cet immense parc est parfait et la belle ville à l'horizon nous offre un magnifique arrière plan.
bayno (18344) 2012-05-11 6:19
I really like your composition, beautiful light and strong contrast between the pleasant colors, great depth, we clearly distinguish the skyscrapers in the background, excellent framing and super quality shot...
yquem46 (38750) 2012-05-11 7:56
Nice color contrast in this scenery, from FG to BG
Excellent quality shot and very luminous
have a nice WE, best regards
jjcordier (78372) 2012-05-11 8:48
Jolie composition où la nature semble l'emporter sur les constructions urbaines bien alignées au fond. La lumière latérale n'éclairait pas les immeubles à gauche mais ton travail de PP a correctement corrigé le problème même si le ciel est un tout petit peu dénaturé.
rychem (26812) 2012-05-11 11:24
Fantastic panorama of Perth, I like the silhouettes of scyscrapers in the BG, perfectly done
PecoBud (3824) 2012-05-11 11:45
First let's start by saying BRAVO!! I find this photo to be excellently presented and with superb clarity and wonderful DOF. Your light management and color saturation are perfect and the angle that this photo was taken is masterful. Your POV should be learned by others, great job Chris!!
TFS.......Your Friend from California.........Buddy

ourania (35100) 2012-05-11 13:19
an amazingly clear view with brilliant and delightful light and so much to see. The skyline of the city looks very impressive against the dramatic sky, the park provides lovely contrasting colours, wonderful peaceful atmosphere, a very pleasant sense of space. I love the long shadows on the lawn and the vibrant atmosphere of this lovely afternoon. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,
npecanhuk (69166) 2012-05-11 17:37
Wonderful urban environment!
Very beautiful and attractive picture!

aliabazari (16053) 2012-05-12 12:25
Good record of this beautiful and lovely landscape. By combining architectural and urban blue sky. Fine. Colors are excellent.
Thank you sincerely.
korbee (6617) 2012-05-12 13:22
This brings back good memories to me from the Perth of the 1980s!
Perfect vieuw on the Swan and the skyline of one of the most easy going cities on earth.
The typical WA trees or a good froeground.
lakshmip1949 (19081) 2012-05-13 4:25
Looks like Manhattan skyline. Beautiful view with greenery in the foreground and a nice skyline across the river. Nice inclusion of the part of the building . Excellent color contrast with nice atmosphere.
siolaw (38292) 2012-05-13 7:44
A pleasant expansive view with skyline in the distance and nice greens in the FG.
Lovely side light giving long shadows!
Angshu (56458) 2012-05-16 3:50
The clouds on the left are not that OE...Interseting to see the old wall strcuture on the left, creates a good lead-in. Good expanse of green with the two people providing scale. Well done!
i9l2y1m8a8t3 (4798) 2012-05-24 6:31
This kind of view pretty much reminds me of Manila viewed from Fort Santiago with all those walls and greens but of course, minus the skyline. I loved the clarity in here, the sharpness and the compact presentation of such beautiful city. Very nice presentation!
