The Crown Casino in Melbourne fires a round of flames from a number of columns on the waterside. These flames are fired regulary during the evening in different combinations.
Taken from the observation platform of the Rialto Tower at 300m. I stabilized my camera in a corner of the fence. The Sony Alpha 100 also has a build in shock absorber which certainly helps. The ISO rate was 800.

What a view! Point of view i high on the scale! Very sharp and detailed evening photo. Great colours and light. What ISO were used since you could use 1/13 sec?
Thanks for sharing.

You showed us a really great city view. Observation platform must be huge. Great composition.

Hi Harko - this is good, a nice highviewpoint above the city, good exposure to capture the night time scene & there's still just a little bit of blue left in the small amount of sky at the top of the image.

Hi Harko - it's quite rare to see a night shot from such a high perspective, makes it unique, with so much of the street pattern visible in the form of lights.

I know this view well and you captured a great moment with the flames reflecting on the river. The exposure is excellent and so are the details. I like how you included a bit of the bay in the background.

j'adore les vues depuis le rialto, tu as pris une vue superbe avec une très bonne profondeur et seulement a f4. Bravo

Quite a view from the Rialto tower Harko!
Very low noise on your camera at iso 800, i am impressed, also by the fact that you managed this without a tripod.
A very impressive result indeed.
