Photographer's Note

I managed to combine a long perspective with a diagonal composition two photographic rules in one photo.

Sydney Harbor Bridge, steel-arch bridge across Sydney Harbor (Port Jackson), Australia. The bridge, opened in 1932, serves as the primary transportation link between Sydney and its suburbs on the northern side of the harbor. It spans about 500 meters (1,650 feet), making it one of the longest steel-arch bridge in the world. Along its length, it features four railroad tracks, a highway , and two pedestrian walkways.

Sydney Opera House, located on Sydney Harbor. Its unique use of a series of gleaming white sail-shaped shells as its roof structure makes it one of the most-photographed buildings in the world.
In 1956 the state government sponsored an international competition for a design. Architects from some 30 countries submitted 233 entries. In January 1957 the judging committee announced the winning entry, that of Danish architect Jorn Utzon, who won with a dramatic design showing a complex of two main halls side by side facing out to the harbor on a large podium.
