This of course is the Sydney Opera House. No doubt you've seen it photographed from every possible angle. To get this POV, I snuck up the stairs of the very swanky Hyatt Hotel to get the reflections. I was sure they'd shoosh me away, or make me pay some amount of the $1,200 a night it costs to stay in this posh joint.

Really? $1,200 for one night! Outrageous is a mild word. But maybe it was worth the risk for taking a photo showing two Opera houses. I think this is an angle I haven't seen before, and new angles are almost necessary for extremely well known buildings like this. That rule should be applicable for the Taj Mahal, the great pyramids and the Eiffel Tower as well. The colours create a nice atmosphere and the lonely person sitting on a bench contributes well.

The mood is quite palpable and the perspective on the opera house excellent. Superb light management helps retain that wonderful atmosphere. Top class photography. Bravo!

J'avais déjà vu cette photo sur facebook ces derniers jours et je me demandais bien combien de temps elle prendrait pour atteindre ces pages. Un point de vue bien différent sur le célèbre opéra.

Hello Lisa, taking a chance as you did, was well worth the effort.
An alternative view of the iconic Opera House that probably won't have been seen on TE before.
I particularly like the limited palette of colour.

nice the created result with the unique Sydney Opera House to reflected on the glass of the construction on the left.I like the created perspective as the excellent light and colour management of the image.

Hello dear Lisa, very good photograph of this beautiful and interesting composition with the superintereresante building and its reflection, very well captured in this beautiful image, with good clarity, depth, light, color and quality. Excellent and interesting work perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thank you for sharing this beautiful work.
Good day and happy week.
Best wishes from the south of Spain.
A cordial hug.

I tried to remember where this angle could be possible. But didn't come to think it's up the stairs of a hotel. Angle doesn't look that high which reminds me that Opera House is much bigger than what it looks like in pictures.
Lovely light and good reflection.

I think it worth the risk, you have an excellent photo. But it really cost 1200 USD just to walk on that boardwalk? Unbelievable.

Good POV and composition.
Very interesting colours.
I like it.
macjake (73063) 2017-02-14 12:37
or should i call you Juan (JFS), he often posted photos like this. so this is a $1200 photograph? cool :)
you seem to capture alot of the purple/rose hour colours in the sky...how do you do that?
neat how the OH is squished and folded like an accordian on the left side :) cool shot and result
i wonder how much drinks and dessert are at this place?
carlo62 (55798) 2017-02-14 14:11
che vuoi che siano $1,200 per una foto come questa!!!
Bellissima composizione, valeva la pena fare questa pazzia, il riflesso è splendido, mi piace molto anche la presenza della persona e il tutto è supportato da delle tonalità calde che sono la mia passione.

This POV is fabulous. I love reflections, and this one is flawless. I like how the pier leads us to the iconic Opera House, and that one lone man sitting at the end. The soft colors are beautiful, too.
grigand (20198) 2017-02-15 12:53
Bellissima compo, hai creato un'immagine speciale come il prezzo della stanza !

Fascinating reflections and a wonderful double delight that holds the eyes in firmly taken from your adventurous viewpoint. This is indeed a pleasure precisely taken backed by late afternoon golden colours which turns this to an appealing stuff. What opulence! Congrats

Splendid double portrait of this world-famous opera house of Utzon in Sidney. One of the special landmarks of the city.
You found the perfect conditions of place and time for this exceptional image of it. So it deserves a place with my favourites.
Have a good weekend

Hi again dear Lisa
I almost missed this image!
What a wonderful idea, so well-seen. The colours are so unusual, the dramatic light and menacing clouds add lots of atmosphere. The lonely silhouette is the cherry on the cake.
Have a nice Sunday

Wonderful place and architecture you captured with lovely reflection on the glas of other building.
I like to look down the water and beautiful street lamps.
Another wonderful photo creation with Sidney Opera House as main motive.
Great photo job.
PaulVDV (32749) 2017-03-21 13:52
I've missed this one.
So Sydney has two Opera Houses :) I haven't seen a picture from this point of view yet.
Very well observed ... or else very well been searching and have found.
The colours are also very special with a light purple overtone.
Best regards, Paul

fantastic shape, so characteristic, so recognizable!
You made a great use of it again. A point of view not seen yet. The sky is fabulous making a great backdrop for the scene.
Of course the reflection doubles the treat.
Very impressive final effect!

Beautiful and original capture of the famous Opera House, with wonderful soft colors of the sky and a very nice reflection on the windows! Wonderful composition! Very good job!
