    Harsh colour tint is due to the tint of the windows from the Tower these pictures were taken from.
    I found the reflective nature of the windows a real problem as was the tint but meh I'm happy considering there was no tripod used.

    The last shot in your first post is the best one, really nice colours and including that little bit of the remnants of the sunset in the sky makes the shot imo.

    Very nice, you can see my office in several of the shots. It's the building in the lower left hand corner of the first shots of both posts directly on the corner of Elizabeth and Flinders across from Flinders station, the one that sort of looks like shop front protective grating/fence stuff.

    Very nice photos indeed.

    Thanks for the comments guys.
    I'll try and make a few larger ones for your desktops and host them somewhere, I'm at work currently.
    I couldn't do an hdr as i was sans tripod and even with it the reflections internally were a nightmare.
    Why they have such garish reflections imho detracts from the spectacle, the same for that horrid blue tint in some of the windows.
    I used my jacket to stop some reflections but it was clumsy at the best of times.
    Resting the camera on the window ledge using a lens cap to tilt the camera,
    Using an old flektogon 35mm lens manually focused helped as well.

    fantastic shots mate, have you considered contacting them asking if you can get access to the roof for shots, say its for a uni class or something.....

    I was gonna say .. damn the later night shots the bright building lights blew out a little.. but that last shot in your first post is absolutely stunning.

    Which camera/lens did you use for them out of interest, as the level of detail in the last shot of first post is amazing!

    Thanks for sharing :)
