Adam Oldmeadow 8/2/2006 1:29:23 AM

Awesome Photograph!
Coincidently I would have been standing only a few hundred meters away from you when you took this. You are right about the heat; I only wore a shirt, shorts and thongs the whole night. I was frustrated that I didnít have my camera on me, but I couldnít trust it at an all night party in St. Kilda.

Panorama of 3 images of the Southbank area of Melbourne, taken New Year's Eve. Superimposed fireworks images taken from a different vantage. Applied lens correction filter.
It had been a scorching hot day, and was still about 37C (100F) when these images were taken.
