A couple of days ago I’ve found myself at the Circular Quay in Sydney – it was late afternoon and the place was swarming with tourists and locals alike. I was participating in an Sydney Icons Night Photography event for which I RSVP for at The idea behind the meeting was to take photos of Circular Quay, Harbour Bridge and Opera House in the evening & night light.

I ended up taking photos well into the night mostly because brightly lit boats don’t really help with taking long-time exposures at night (unless one enjoys having tons of red/white lines across the water).

Here’s a night shot of Circular Quay including Opera House and Harbour Bridge. High-resolution version is available here (8635×2160, 13MB file).

I am often amazed by high-quality macro shots of flowers and insects – when most of the bug/flower is in focus. It takes careful planning (after all object can’t move too much) and later usage of a technique called focus stacking. Without it – only a part of the object would be in focus, while everything else would remain blurry.

I’ve finally decided to play with focus stacking and here are some of my results (high-res photos available on request).
