Brisbane downtown at night

Taken from Brisbane's beautiful Story Bridge. I was forced to use high ISO and low F-stop because I had to balance my camera on the bridge itself which was not stable at all due to the constant traffic passing over it. I took about 20 shots and this one was the sharpest, and subsequently, the winner.

Brisbane is a really beautiful city. Home to about 1.4 million people, it's a relatively big city with plenty of space. Size-wise, it's a few steps up from Auckland and, I imagine, a nice place to live ... if one can overlook the threat of snakes and spiders and crocs and evil, laughing ostrich and giant, flying ravens that come out of the sky at vicious speed to steal pieces of your hair.
