Self-Portrait at Sydney Opera House

My sister took the photo. I did the post-editing in Photoshop. I like the angle where this photo was taken, the opera house is just enormous to fit on a regular lens but with a wide angle it makes a whole lot of difference shooting at this distance. The arcs of the opera house just cuts thru the photo.

I tried a cross-processed effect on the photo, a mix of over-saturated and deeper color depths--vivid photograph. It was one of those moments when all the people around the place disappeared and gave us a chance to take a single photo where there weren’t people on the frame—the Opera house they say is always packed with visitors. Fantastic Timing!
