Wow! You captured so much of her. You have a wonderfully located office window. I do like the way you have managed to capture the light. It makes her look almost three-dimensional. Well done.

And thank you for your coverage of the WYD activities. This is where I get to see the real people - forget the SMH.

nice! Wide angle lens? And how did you get above the chapel?

Ann said...

Thanks, Julie. I may hate my job but I love the location.

ken mac - I'm on the third floor of a building across the road. This one is taken with the point and shoot so its not a particularly wide angle, only about 35 I think, not as wide as the SLR.

That place is huge!

I am so glad you left it big till we could click and enlarge...man, that is a fabulous shot. I recommend to anyone to enlarge it. It is really good before but opened up it is magnificent.

That is fantastic. I don't know that I have seen a church that large. With a point and shoot? You got the light just right and all.

This is a fabulous picture. The clouds make a mood, but the lighting is really what grabs me. Well done!

Oh my that's pretty. Thank you for sharing that pic.

Dina said...

A stunning picture of St. Mary's and the Sydney sky in all their glory. The cathedral is my favorite building in your city. In my year in Australia I often went to the Solemn Sung Mass (probably the only Israeli there) to learn and enjoy the "smells and bells" and the drama of the Catholic Church.
Thanks for this view from the other direction.
