    Haven't submitted any images just to look at, so thought I show you one of
    Australia's oldest buildings, which doesn't make it very old, but anyway.:lol:

    Nice, but if I may, a little heavy on the color end.

    I'm not against the sky becoming so very dark blue at the top ... effect of a polariser?
    And it is a beautiful building.
    I must agree with Karissa though on that big branch being a bit of a distraction.

    Thanks for your comments. I shot it many years ago on 5x4 transparency. I did use a polaroid filter. The problem here in Australia is the intense contrast of the light, which is why I always enjoy shooting in Europe or the U.K. Damn Branch, didn't think you'd notice. Philip.

    Yes it is "Chiller" It used to be an important observatory, but due to the amount of light in the Sydney sky, it is more a tourist attraction now, but still operates. The ball bearings used on the turning mechanism are actually old cannon balls. Well worth a visit.:lmao: :lmao:

    I love this color saturation....mmmm, a 4x5 transparency....gorgeous!!

    Branch isn't bothering me one bit. Still gives the overall impression of framing the building. If you'd hunkered down a bit to lose it, the perspective would have been lost. I think the right choice was made here. :thumbup: Nice!
