    Looks absolutely fantastic. Great shadows, velvet water.

    Would you mind posting the settings?

    Very nice images, good composition and colour capture, but I would straighten the waterline/horizon for #1.

    No exif showing for me using EXIF viewer.

    wow, i LOVE #3. apart from a slightly over-bright light in the centre of that building on the right, i would pay for that pic (and that's saying something)
    i also really like #2, though it seems marginally crooked.
    #1 and #4 are ok shots, but fairly crooked

    well done.

    Thanks for the kind comments! :D

    I noticed that bright light too :S.

    I have plans for another opera house shot ;)

    Thanks to the others for feedback too!

    All great shots but as others have said straighten your horizons.

    I love the shots. They are definitely good vantage points.

    Have you tried using a longer focal length and stitching the photos together? I usually prefer that look than using a shorter focal length and cropping out the top and bottom. You also end up with a much higher resolution shot.

    2 is my pick, I'd just straighten up a few of the pics, otherwise, nice captures :thumbup:.

    Looks good. Would adjust the colour tone to get rid of that digital brown.
