033 - Seven Oh Five

Day 33. Tonight we went into the city to see the Chinese New Year parade. We met friends in George Street, at what we thought would be a great viewing location for the parade. Turns out it wasn't that great after all. I took my good camera, the Nikon D7000 to take photos of the parade but it was pretty hard to get a good shot. I looked upwards and saw the setting sun hitting the Town Hall clock and snapped a few frames.  I particularly liked this one.

The contrast of the orange sunlight on the sandstone against the blue sky makes it really stand out nicely I thought, however I did give it a little bit of postprocessing in Aperture just to make it pop.
