That Saturday night Federation Square was chock-full. I believe it was the premiere showing of the Skyfall (James Bond film). Later there was a fireworks display on the Yarra. Was the first time ever I watched fireworks from *above*. :)

Taken: Saturday, 10th November, 2012
Focal length: 65 mm
Shutter speed: 1 sec
Aperture: F8
ISO: 800
Notes: Shot from the balcony of the Eureka tower through the chain-link fence. First I planned to use multiple exposures from slightly different angles and merge them together to remove the fence from the shot. Then I figured a much simpler solution: set the camera a few centimetres away from it and kept shaking the fence back and forth to blur it away. It worked! :)
