Sydney opera house (me too)

As I enjoyed the Sydney harbour pics from Chris and Clarky so much, I thought I put one in myself. I only had 7 hours in Sydney as I only had a short break between plane rides going to Fiji, but I really enjoyed the walk through Sydney. I have a few more from that day but this of the SOH was the only one I could find that I posted on the WEB.

Yet another view (it really is a terrific building):

It is. Much, much more impressive, and interesting, up close than I could ever have imagined from the photos I'd seen beforehand, or indeed, sadly, from the ones I took.

We've seen this picture of yours of it here before, I believe? It's good to see it again.

I guess i take it a little more for granted than you guys but you are right it is a very impressive building and where it is located (Bennelong Point) makes it all the more impressive. Did either of you get to look inside :
Its just as good.
I like your shot Prieni. I would have liked to have seen it all in shadow as the detail in the shadowed area looks quite good.
Has it been cropped : and what lens did you use :

Thanks for your comments!

Clarky,

it's not a crop (or if it is, it is a very slight one) and was taken with my *istD kit lens, the FA J 18-35 @ 35 mm (or so it says on a site where I posted it; I thought that I took it with the Kiron 70-210 but apparently I haven't).
It must have been late morning as we arrived fresh and early

Lovely shot - I really like that building a lot.

I have some old fil shots I might need to scan now. Not sure how though.

The inside looks stunning - and I went for a classic concert when I was around.
