  1. Superb night photography of Sidney 🙂

  2. Love all the photos of Sydney at night. It has a magical aura. How were the fireworks? They looked spectacular on TV

  3. Like the perspectives you got, from high and on the water.
    Happy 2014, Jane.

  4. You’ve changed the expression “I’m feeling blue” to a serene wonderful feeling of: life is beautiful!! Loved the blue hour!

  5. Just yesterday I read about Mapplethorpe’s working to achieve blacker blacks and today… voila!
