Nice angle! The foam behind the boats adds a spark to this, and the bridge and the operahouse(?) serves as two great focalpoints! Congrats to your daughter

Congratulations on the graduation of your daughter You have all the right to be proud of her.

As far as the photo goes, I think it is a cracker of an aerial not only in terms of photographic quality but also as it shows the size of the opera house in relation to other objects. It seems much smaller than you'd expect it to be.

Thanks for the nice words I have one of the opera house taken from the helicopter but a lot closer that I may post. it looks quite big in it but the size then is only relevent to the boats around it..Judith

You have asked me my opinion on this photo as I am supposed to be an "expert" on arial shots. I'm not really an expert but I get more opportunities than other people because of my occupation. I would say this is a superb picture. Could not have done it better myself.
