"The Sydney Town Hall Grand Organ is a large pipe organ built by English firm William Hill & Son in 1890 and is located in the Centennial Hall. When it was installed in 1890, Sydney Town Hall’s Grand Organ was the largest in the world and described as the ‘finest organ ever built by an English organ builder’. It contains one of only two full-length 64′ organ stops in the world. Refer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sydney_Town_Hall_Grand_Organ

Jeffrey M. Smith December 30, 2011

Been almost 20 years since I have visited "Down Under" You have done GREAT justice to this instrument! The definition is lifelike, along with the framoing, comp lighting, and EXCEPTIONAL DoF, all makes for a winning shot! Its almost as if you took the time to "Paint the organ with light in order to get such a uniform pic.
VERY Well Done Indeed and deserved of "GOLD"
