Woohoo
Been a while.
Thanks to Firsty who gave me a few tips on the morning.
Not much to say about the shot other than it was a nice sky and I thought I'd go for the long exposure to get the clouds blurred as they were moving along fairly fast.
The Live View on the 40D was an excellent help.

Editing.

In lightroom
Slight rotation, removal of dust spots and boost to Vibrance and saturation, reduced contrast.
In Photoshop
Noise Ninja, USM, adjustments to levels, Hue and Sat.
Resize, USM and save for Web.

Now I know why you didn't enter one of the shots from the morning in the reflections without mirrors, you were saving it for the free study :)
this was taken on the last Sydney GTG where everyone chickened out because they thought it was going to rain... we ended up with some of the best light on the opera house that I have seen so far
I have a few showing the light as it changed on my site Opera house sunrise
I wonder if we will get a few more turning up next time even if it looks like rain :)
