At this point in time commenting on your photos is almost pointless, there's nothing left to say. Just going to sit back grinning and watch the show.

Excellent photo Ian - There's something really strange in how the centre of the frame isn't where the eye must look first.

I was up there on the weekend looking at the transformation to Media City and seeing this as well, makes me dead jealous that you have these on your doorstep and can make it at dawn. Good work Ian!

Oh Ian, this is another classic and masterpiece! Such a mystery (misty cityscape) and unique drama (the patterns of the foreground) to portray the early morning mood of the place! The tone, the light, the angle, the framing... just couldn't be better!!! Love this very much!
