    wow. love #1 and #2. #3 i would crop a little more of the fence out as it's a touch distracting, and the white in #4 looks a little much.

    apparently we've had around 40 cruise ships come into sydney harbour in the last month, amazing!

    I'm not usually a fan of the technique but you've done well with the HDR.:thumbup:

    thanks all :)

    i was pretty impressed with the results i got. There's one more HDR i'm trying to do, but it's getting some anomalies in the water around the lights. A few of the exposures don't have the same light reflections so crap harsh bits are showing up. When i don't use those exposures the dynamic range doesn't work properly. I'll have to try and ninja it somehow.. maybe do two of them and chop them together. Once i work it out it'll be a contender for the best pic!

    EDIT: Got it to look ok. Did two different HDRs of it and chopped the top half & bottom half together. Added #5

    Do you have a higher res pic of the last one? It would make a good background:)

    The first shot is great. You have the smoke coming out of the stack and some nice water reflections
