      wOw!! - The crowd chaos, the QEII at the I. Term., the pizzaz of CQs ferries, the Opera House - and EVEN the fireworks! -- I imagine no one could get the QM2 too -- too far away, only a very long shot far away would be possible -- just tiny dots of light. So, yours is the great solution -- you packed in everything else in one truly glitzy shot!!!! -Mel

      Agree with Melcir.meri - what a clever way to pack in all the icons of the day! Not to mention that it is such a great shot.

      Thanks everyone !! :)

      I think I would've needed a helicopter to get the QM2 into the shot as well ! :D I have to thank Sacha for picking out the vantage point.

      A fantastic shot, Christopher. Just the right exposure to capture the burst of the fireworks and everything else at the same time. It's understandable, under these circumstances that there's a bit of overexposure below the ship's funnel, but this does not interfere at all with the tremendous pleasure that viewing this photograph brings. Must remember the Cahill Expressway in the future. It has given you an excellent vantage point here.
