I escaped the kids for an hour to shoot Sydney Harbour at dusk.

Almost straight from the camera. Converted from raw, adjusted white balance and brightness, resize, USM, resize, SFW.

That's all you need to do to make my city look beautiful.

Wow - the blue! Thank you all for the votes and comments. I'm having quite a good few weeks!
