    Loving the pics mate. I got married in that parliament building, as they house a registry office there. The free tram is good, did you try the restaurant tram?

    Maybe 12-15 HDRs, based on impressions... or an over-use of unsharp mask.

    Like I said, that's just the impression I get from some of the images.

    I don't even know what HDR is Bob. The pics look great though, you should start a photoshop thread

    i'd love to tell you I also challenged Marmite to answer the same question.....

    but you are wrong and no I do not use Unsharp mask at all, don't even really know what it does......

    One of the MCG pics is a HDR but I don't count that in the equation as it was taken by my son on a PnP and was taken using the HDR feature....

    So fancy trying to list the 12 you claim?

    Obviously, this one is he one you identified as HDR:

    http://teakdoor.com/Gallery/albums/u...tralia-049.jpg

    This one DEFINITELY must have had some post-processing done to it:

    http://teakdoor.com/Gallery/albums/u...tralia-006.jpg

    These other ones all have a weird texture or "feel" to their color:

    http://teakdoor.com/Gallery/albums/u...tralia-025.jpg

    http://teakdoor.com/Gallery/albums/u...tralia-027.jpg

    http://teakdoor.com/Gallery/albums/u...tralia-028.jpg

    This one definitely had some procession done to it as well, judging by he glow from the ground:

    I like the moodiness that you've captured, particularly the building pics with the sky in them, eg: MCG and Flinders Street Station.

    Nice to see you pop back. lets see how you did........ not very well I'm afraid.

    OK, at the time of your post there were 52 proper pics posted plus one from the point and push with the funny features my son and I were using for a bit of fun. So I've discounted that one....which you correctly identified was 006.

    So you suggested the majority were HDR which would make 27.

    Then you claimed it was 12-15

    So you named 5.

    You correctly identified 049 which had the give away of me telling you.

    You cleverly got 049 of the lighthouse noting the ground glow but missing the clue in the text This is a HDR of the lighthouse at Cape Schanck.

    Now to the 3 you also picked, of those you got zero correct.

    Neither 025, 027 nor 028 have any HDR work nor unsharp mask.

    C'mon. look at the people in the station shots, you really think I could have got them looking like that using HDR? I have already stated I do not do single shot HDR's, I only do the proper job using multiple exposures.

    So, you've identified 2, hardly a majority don't you think? Trust me I don't care whether you like them or not, they are what I want to see and that's what I'm giving you, but to knowledgably claim that the majority were HDR (and not be able to back it up) is somewhat cheeky don't you think, but at least you came to play unlike Marmite.

    For the record I shoot almost exclusively -2/3 or -1, it's my style and the station is just desaturated whilst the house shot had nothing more than a crop that came from a slight rotate.

    Next was one of the highlights of the trip......

    My friend had said you often see kangaroos around the area, often right by the side of the road, but to date nothing.....

    There was a picnic site nearby and as we were leaving the area he suggested we stop and look.

    It looked bleak until high up on the hillside overlooking us we spotted this silhouette....



    As our eyes adjusted we realised there were several more which can be clearly seen in the shot.....

    Then as we came down the hill closer to the river we could see hundreds of them....





    Even though there was a river and a good distance between us some of them were getting nervous and started to run...... well hop



    As we drove away we realised the road had taken us behind where they were onto the other side of the fence seen in the top picture, so we stopped at the road side and had a look from there. I got quite close to what I would think was a big male, before he bounced off.



    Note no HDR has been used in the production of our Kangaroos.

    This is ridiculous - would have preferred if I had packed the reply with every single one? I gave a sampling of the ones that stood out the most, IMO (notice the use of "IMO") based on what I interpreted as an odd "feel" to the images. I don't care if you care that I care. I shared my impression and appropriately praised you for the quality of the composition and what you were able to capture.

    Like I said, some of them felt odd, and the HDR assumption was a guess based on you having stated to having used HDR in some. That's all, really.

    Disregarding all that, this is a nice thread, and glad to see you illustrate your travels.

    First thing we did? well.... Junior wanted to eat, but some things are just more important so we went up to Circular Quay .......

    This is the quay from the Opera House



    And this is the Sydney Harbour Bridge from the Opera House........



    And of course this is the Opera House itself. You will become bored of the Opera House but it's like the Taj Mahal, it needs to be visited and photographed at several different times to get it in it's many moods. It's a truly iconice structure and even Junior was impressed.

    Great thread! Makes me homesick for Darwin. By the way, kangaroos don't run or hop, they simply 'bugger orf'. It seems photo threads may be quite popular. I'll undertake to post the occasional photos from the next part of my journey. After Thailand it's the Sea of Cortez, then across the South Pacific.
    Once again Bobcock, great and very entertaining work.

    Great photos Bobcock - go easy on the HDR though.

    Did you get any interesting shots down Kings Cross?

    You cheeky git!

    There's a very small area of sydney that I would consider living/working in.

    The rest of it is a horrible wasteland.
