A much wider angled view (18mm) of Perth City taken from South Perth, with the sun setting at left at 5:47 pm. I've used flash here, to fill in the shadows on the tree & grass & it has improved, rather than damaged the shot. No hard shadows, & no reflected glare spots, which often spoils flash shots.
The Swan River is wide, clean & shallow, unlike the muddy brown Brisbane & Yarra Rivers, in the eastern States (Qld & Vic).

like the composition here, the tree is so perfectly placed and beckons you into the image and frames the view so majestically. I love the light and the glass like effect of the water. Executed magnificently and a quality presentation.
Enjoy your weekend - Brian.

Bonjour, cher Chris,
Une composition, une fois encore, très réussie avec ce choix de cadrage et de cet arbre penché, qui invite à contempler le reste du très beau paysage.

A great view on this river in Perth
Fine colors and excellent sharpness

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The distance between the tree and the highrise buildings is giving depth to the scene. The point of view is showing a panorama of this area of Perth. The late afternoon light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

J'aime beaucoup l'arbre sur la gauche qui semble vouloir nous faire découvrir le panorama que nous offre la ville en arrière plan. Un très beau plan d'eau qui ajoute une touche de douceur à l'ensemble.

Ton petit coup de flash a été efficace et t'a permis de réaliser une belle photo de cet endroit donnant l'illusion d'une grande ville à la campagne.

I love the subtle reflections!
I love the presence of that tree on the left!

Beautiful view of the Swan River, I like the tree in FG and beautiful reflections of the city buildings, great DOF

A shot worth sharing with the use of flash. I love the exposure of the sky which is so symetrical with the water in blue colour. What I still miss is the wider angle though the same has been discribed by you.

luce ottimamente gestita e ottima omogeneità cromatica all'interno dell'inquadratura.
Mi piace molto il POV con il verde in FG e la città con i suoi palazzi sullo sfondo,

Interesting note. I wouldn't think about using the flash here, but what I know about photography, nothing. Nice composition with the eucalyptus tree. Beautiful panorama of the town on the other shore. Nice calm atmosphere. Swan river - nice name.
have a beautiful Sunday

Hi dear Chris
This is an immaculate photo, the silvery blue light on the water is amazing and I like the inclusion of the gum tree which provides a natural frame for part of the image.
Thanks for sharing
jlbrthnn (76039) 2012-04-29 3:51
I'm glad to see this new view of Perth, and what scenery! The framing is very good with the preliminary plan that gives depth. The light, colors and sharpness are excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Bon cadrage de l'arbre pencher comme comme pour encadrer la ville, belle lumière, reflets et contraste des couleurs

I also like this one! It was a good idea to include this tree to frame the skyline. Good shot, with good colours and good use of flash!
