Melbourne After Dark 1 by moviegirl78 Melbourne After Dark 1 by moviegirl78
Digital Photo taken last night along the Yarra River in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

No cropping, but slight contrast added.

I :heart: my tripod! I was taking heaps of photos last night when a huge lightning storm drifted through Melbourne. Needless to say I went a little nuts trying to capture that perfect lightning shot, but ended up with some relatively decent photos (I think) with some really interesting cloud formations from the back light of the lightning. This is the first that I'll upload from last nights outing. I hope you enjoy.

Amazing amazing amazing picture!
I don't think my words will be able to comment on the greatness before me, It blows my simple mind!!! Everything is so perfect, the clarity of the water, the mood of the sky, and the liveliness of the city! The reflection in the water is really something outstanding, and the focus of the city is stunning, as well! One tiny little thing, is the left part of the city is just a tiny bit blurry. A bit bright. But I don't know if that's the picture, or just the view it self.
Again, this picture is amazing. Great job.

Ok Kayla, I am getting kinda jealous looking at all these city-scapes...it isn't fair you have such a beautiful, picturesque city to photograph...No question you are doing it justice! Your captures of that beautiful place are phenomenal...but it makes me want to go looking for a pretty city near water...and I don't even like cities!!! LOL

I don't know why I didn't :+fav: this picture earlier. I think it's 'cos I have it framed in my loungeroom since the art-swap we did at the 10th Dev-art celebration. I think it's cool. :thumbsup:

I dunno, it's the kind of picture that seems too perfect a capture... that's what got me. Like my brain was having a hard time wrapping my head around the idea that a human took it, it's that impressive.

I love this one! The clouds add so much more character and darkness to this picture, very ominous. I am curious what camera do you shoot with?

Thank you so very much! :D :hug: It was a very stormy night when I took this shot! :D

All of the digital photos I have in my gallery have been shot with a Kodak EasyShare - the camera data is underneath the pageviews/faves/downloads info on the right hand side of the screen. It's not as big or fancy as other cameras out there, but when it gives me shots like this one, how can I not love it? :D
