Powerful and sad image. With all the city lights...this person looks so lost and lonely. Wonderful capture. A whole story in a single image.
I bet all her friends and the rest of the party are just off to the leftwink I like your bridge shots.
Aussie: No his friends were one text away, that was what he is busy doing.

Or perhaps, blissfully content....

I can't tell you the many times that I sit down alone and stare at beautiful scenes all over the country, just like this. Perhaps other people think I lok lonely and sad too, and yet I am joyous at the wonder of nature, the spectacle of life, happy with my thoughts and me.

A long day, a cold beer, texting a freind with this view.... I've missed trains and slept under the stars after nights out in my youth, ah the romantic in me... smile
Aussie: Your spot on. HE was texting someone and thats why he stayed fairly still for me long shutterspeed.
What wonderful reflections!
Aussie: Thanks Chris

I remember this one great reflection
Aussie: Yes you were there, my last southbank shot, before moving across the bridge.
I bet she's texting! Love this picture Aussie
Aussie: HE was. Thanks Bill

Great picture, what caught my eyes the most is the row of lights above the right hand part of the bridge. It looks like bookends on a half-empty shelf. But first it was the lone figure.
Aussie: I think that is an empty carpark, but it seems too high up. I must remember to look at in next time I'm in the city.

This now looks like a disco ice rink Aussie.
Sooooo beautiful.
I bet she was not alone for long.
Aussie: He was texting someone, maybe they were on their way. Should have mentioned it was a male.
I feel she's not so lonely but happy looking at the views.
Aussie: I should have mentioned that it was a he. He was busy texting someone, which was lucky or he would have been just a blur with the long shutterspeed
Beautiful city picture. It is true there are a lot of lonely people out there.
The colour and texture of the water against the white of the bridge makes this a great picture. The inclusion on the corner of our texting friends makes it extraordinary.
This is good Aussie, I love those reflections but there is a sadness with the lone figure. I've just realised while Maureen was doing the Christmas cards we have a relative in Brisbane who lives in Arana Hills.
Superb night shot Aussie. I am amazed by the steadiness of the chap for 20 seconds!
Fantastic image. Love the solitary figure and the wonderfully colourful reflections. Who wouldn`t want to just sit there and enjoy the view. (:o)

It's a nice picture without the added interest of the chap in the foreground, which makes it even better

I love this one, Aussie. The reflections are fantastic - but the quiet and stillness the individual bring to this composition is exquisite. I don't find this a lonely shot, but a very peaceful one.

Lovely colours on the water, Aussie. The figure looks sad, somehow.
