Nice, but using a better resizing algorithm would make them even nicer.

Thanks all for the positive comments.
Resizing will improve in future and as for too much detail,
well we are talking about Collins Street and its Boomstyle buildings!
Nothing more to say.

Top pics Collector, truly captured the essence of Collins Street.

On a side note, whatever happened to the selling of 171 Collins Street and the approved permit of a 22 story residential, office and retail development on the site?

only suggestion that i have is that 120 collins should be shot with st michael's church in the foreground, not scot's church. call me a snob, but i'm a purist!

I tried that shot, but the angle to get St Michael's in prevented the tower on 120 Collins Street from being visible, while the shot that you see shows both Scot's church spire and 120 Collins tower together.
In my opinion, the better shot.

Although the Colonial Mutal Life building a few doors down from the ASX was a very sad loss and considered to most amazing building of it's time, IMO this building is the most ornate ever constructed in Australia. It was basically a 'Get ****ed' statement saying 'we got all the money'. The price in 1890 was around 300,000 pounds to construct, ******* lunicy basically in today's money for a 7 storey tower.

There was a story i heard that so much gold leaf was used on the interiores that the powers that be in Britain, actually sailed over to inspect the building to see where the hell all the damn money was going.

Perhaps after the Royal Exhibition Building, it's a building i could look at all day.

Great Pics.

Cheers
