I just happened to be walking past the Treasury Casino tonight, and it was calling out to be photographed, in all it’s colourful glory.
p.s. the bar for this photo has been raised pretty high, with my photos for the last 2 days of this project making the flickr 'explore' pages. I'm absolutely stoked (and stunned) - thank you to everyone who viewed them, commented & added them to their favourites.
Early morning shot of the Old Treasury Building in Spring Street, Melbourne.
An old picture from over 4 years ago of the Treasury at Petra viewed from the Siq.
collage/acrylic on wood. i got a book a while ago called "treasury of cats" . last night i found it in room and made this while dealing with the absence of wisdom teeth in my mouth. i guess you could say vicodin helped me make this one..... (i'll post a better photo later)
Constructed between 1885 - 1889 this building housed Queensland's government administration and was occupied by the Premier, Colonial Secretary, Registrar-General, Treasury, Mines, Works, Police and Auditor-General. In the early 1990's it underwent a transformation and was converted into a Casino.
The old Treasury place and looking high above the front door.
The great thing about using a 10mm lens is that you get so much in the frame but you also get the distortion and in this case, the bottom of this image. I've tried to straighten it a little bit but then decided to leave as is instead.

....located in one of Brisbane's heritage buildings, along the banks of the Brisbane River...I have seen it lit up in fluorescent pink as well - hmmm!!
I visited the HM Treasury building during the Open House London. The most interesting part was the circular courtyard. I was lucky enough to be able to take a long exposure and have the sun shining at the end I was taking a photo of.

Petra is the second of the 7 New Wonders of the World which I have seen this year, the first being the Great Wall of China. Alas, I missed Christ the Redeemer during my trip to South America.
Visiting here first thing in the morning was certainly the most enjoyable of the trip, allowing us to take images of the Treasury without anyone standing in the way, and also allowing us to clamber up the nearby rocks which are generally a no-go area to get a decent elevated view.
It’s impressive how such a structure could be carved directly into the stone; I certainly wouldn’t want to be the person doing it for fear of making a slight mistake. At least at Halloween there are spare pumpkins you can use should you need to; you only really get one chance at something like this.

-- Iceland Tour & Post-Processing Tutorials --
Using some recently made contacts, I was able to not only get inside Petra before the tourists, but I was also allowed into the Treasury. This is usually forbidden, so it made for quite an unusual and rarely seen viewpoint of such a popular tourist destination. Due to the shortness of time, this was a quick snap, but I'm pretty happy in how it came out. This was part of an awesome trip with Mike Murphyz and Jimmy Mcintyre.
I'd also like to remind people that I might be leading a photographic trip to Iceland in September to shoot some landscapes and aurora (hopefully), plus some post-processing seminars some evenings, depending on weather conditions. If you're interested in this, please send me a message here or on Facebook. If you live in the London area and want some photography lessons or help with post-processing, get in touch.

Born in Weilheim, some forty kilometres south-west of Munich, the sculptor Georg Petel began working in Augsburg in 1625. He ranks as one of the greatest sculptors of his time and as one of the finest ivory carvers in Europe.
This intensely expressive crucifix is modelled on a type invented by the great Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens. The sculpture once belonged to the Palatine branch of the Wittelsbach family and has been on display in the Residence Treasury since 1958.
ivory, height 65.5 cm
Trying out the new Photomatix Pro 3.2.....Works much better then the older version !!!
AEB of 3 shots......-2, 0 and +2 taken at dusk.
This must be the most photographed monument in Petra, but you can't get far enough back to get a good shot, and it is nearly always in shadow. This picture was stitched from four original photos using AutopanoGiga - this enabled me to get a full-on shot of the facade, and shows clearly how it was cut out of the mountain. It is best viewed large.
The hardest thing with taking this photo of the Treasury in Petra is to avoid getting other tourists in the picture.
