Did you take a trip on a blue sky helicopter?
Dawn light is perfect for this angle of the city, I wish I could get myself up at that time.

Great shot as usual Fabian. That building you've lined up under Sydney Tower looks interesting. Do you know what it is ?

Happy New Year 2013, from me in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia!

And I'll be heading to Sydney + Canberra (and even Wollongong!) in September for a well-deserved break... See you soon!

The lips were fantastic and Kylie Minogue was a genius with her efforts last night. Can she do it again please?

For me, the view towards circular quay is very uninspiring. I think it every time I come into Sydney on a ferry. The side views are the best ie from the botantic gardens (or hyde park whatever its called) and Darling Harbour. The Deutsche Bank building is one of my favourites in Aus.

I agree entirely. If only Space was taller and Goldfields House was replaced. This edge of the skyline needs a good rejuvenation. That said Barangaroo should look good from this angle to the right in the distance.

Its going to be years before Goldfields is torn down.

I've noticed that the new AMP logo is on the AMP Building at long last. Looks alot brighter
