Giant Sky Wheel and MCG from Princes Bridge. The Giant Sky Wheel is the largest traveling Ferris wheel in the southern hemisphere. The MCG is the largest stadium in Australia, and holds the world record for the highest light towers at any sporting venue The photo was literally taken on the bridge as I used its railings to steady the camera for this 4 second exposure. Wish I had my tripod! Aperture: f/5.6, Focal Length: 49 mm The MCG lights were on for the Collingwood vs Kangaroos game (2008 AFL season round 5). The Kangaroos won in the end.

the boat at the bottom left would have looked wonderful more towards the lower left golden ratio point.
