Milsons Point wharf
Less is more...
That was what came to my mind when looking at this image. Unlike other images, notice that the Sydney Harbour Bridge, blue skies and palm trees are the most prominent features in this photo print.
It was nice revisiting and recapturing familiar spots in a different way. Since the sky was so clear and beautiful, I decided to take out my wide-angle lens, which allows me to capture a wider field of view than my vision.
Why I love this image of Sydney Harbour from Milsons Point wharf?
I love how this image isn't overly cluttered. In other words, there are only 3 things that stand out in this image: the palm trees, Sydney Harbour Bridge and the crisp-looking blue skies. That's why the good old saying 'less is more' perfectly describes this image. I feel the palm trees add a subtropical feel as well.
Even though the Sydney Opera House is in the background, I think it's lovely to be able to include it in this image since it's another Sydney icon. I could see myself recapturing this scene with a few more clouds. I think the few extra clouds would add more character to my next image. That's my next project.
