70000th photo (part 2), Sydney Opera House
Yes, you read that correctly … part 2.
I made a mistake.
I wrote previously about “flipping” or resetting the image-number counter on my camera for the 7th time as I visited the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney.
I was wrong and I’d been too hasty when I began writing. I’d read the image numbers incorrectly, and I’d overlooked the image numbers (67000!).
But it wasn’t long until zeroes were back on the camera display and the actual 70000th exposure was made on the Canon 450D/XSi.
For a few evenings after opening night, I’d visited and photographed various displays at the VIVID Sydney festival of lights around Sydney Cove, Walsh Bay, and Darling Harbour. Midweek is a good time with fewer people around for plenty of space at the best spots to photograph the sights. I chose a Wednesday evening to focus on the Opera House. The photos below form a part of the sequence called “PLAY” by the Spinifex Group who have additional projections at the festival.

Amazing photo of the Opera House! I
Hi, Travis, and thanks!
Nice image. Great job including the reflection in the water. You must have used a high ISO or low aperture number or both to capture these images.
Hi and thanks, Mark. You’re right on both ISO and aperture; the details are the same for both photos: 1/6s, f/2.8, ISO800, with the 50/1.4 prime. Unfortunately, the noise is a killer at ISO1600 on the EOS450D/XSi, even after some massaging from the in-camera software.
Very cool Henry…I have only see the Opera house lit up with coloured lights….like what they did with it!
Hi and thanks, Anita. The folks in the Spinifex Group should be thanked for their innovative light projection onto the Opera House; photographic stills capture just a portion of the dynamic display. Please stay tuned for more shots I made at and around the VIVID Sydney festival! 🙂
Wow, what an amazing photo! And congrats on snapping so many. 🙂
Hi, Jessica, and thanks for your kind words. I have more photos to come from Sydney’s festival of lights. 🙂 Thank you for stopping by!

Beautiful Capture, Henry. The Opera House is remarkable even during the day – just one of those landmarks that really grabs your attention!
Not to mention,, all of the awesome events they stage there on a regular basis!
Thanks for sharing!
Hi, Lou. I hope you had a chance to look at some of the galleries of photos I made in and around Sydney. I miss Sydney lots! Thanks for stopping by to read and for your comment!
I have not yet seen the others, seems during the school holidays I am racing around trying to keep up 🙂
Hi, Lou. If you love Sydney as much as I miss the city, and when you’ve some time, you may have fun with and/or trouble peeling your eyeballs away from the following 🙂
