Aperture: f/4.5

I chose this shot because when I look at it I can not come up with a nice title except “Sydney at Sunset”. I had a couple of fun shots I would have preferred to enter but after PP them I realised I took them the day before the challenge announcement.

Thanks for all of the great suggestions folks. My pick is ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' CNovack "Travel Lightly". Love the pun.

I saw the plane fly overhead to I whipped out my camera from my bag which usually has the 70-200mm lens attached and was a bit disappointed that the 50mm was on. No time to change so I set the camera for the conditions and took the shot. I figured I could crop the image later. However, I liked the composition and this is basically straight from the camera (except for raw conversion). I even managed to hold the camera straight, which is something I rarely achieve for some reason. I do like the IQ from this lens.

For those who might look closely there are several groups of climbers on the bridge. Below are some cropped shots of them for those who might be interested.

"The Invasion Has Begun" In addition to the plane, I think I see a tank at the top of the bridge.... :-) Obviously it's a very small scale invasion...
