  22. Hi there - why not include two icons in one picture! Splendid sky.

    Like the way you have left enough detail in the Opera House for it have shape - so it’s not just an outline.

  31. Hi Jim,
    I don't think I have ever seen a photo of Sydney's Harbour Bridge and Opera House silhouetted with such a subtle peaceful Sky as their backdrop before. Very beautiful, especially with the Bridge's lights not yet visible.
    Appreciate also your Visit to my SWF.
    Good wishes and thanks from Magda and Family in Australia
