You've never seen Melbourne like this!

Melbourne - WOW - what a city!! We spent 4 jam packed days there and need to spend another 20 to really see everything! Excellent pedestrian city - extremely walkable from end to end. A pleasure to visit and I am sure to live in.

Glad you enjoyed Melbourne and Sydney.

Those are very good shots indeed. It's a shame you didn't have enough time to get out to the suburbs at all as that's where the real city character in both shines! (Collingwood ftw!)

Thanks Svarty! The 4 days whizzed past so fast, leaving a huge amount still to explore.

hehehe yes we did - a few times - but we had our training wheels on the city circuit for the first few times - we mainly walked though - approx 10-15km's per day. We were absolutely buggered at the end of each day (no pun intended)

You're right - we all know over here that Melbourne is a very photogenic city, but I for one have seen a more beautifully composed set of pictures. Every one a little masterpiece.

Congratrulations on your work. It must have taken so much time to conceive those angles and lighting set-ups, and a special 'eye' to see them. Beyond that, I'm speechless.

Gawd, this all just gets better and better! From here one would think that there has to be a professional purpose to this level or work, but whatever, thanks so much for sharing them here.

Thanks Bronteboy. As I mentioned in the Sydney thread, photography is my hobby and a great means to de-stress. A "labour" of love. I have been shooting cities and street scenes for over 7 years now and they represent my favourite subjects, which I enjoy sharing.

Thanks Drunkill. I think the knack is something that has evolved whilst shooting cities and street scenes. I think Melbourne is one of those cities that looks great in the rain and in the shine!
