Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of signature bridge at Sydney, Australia. Firstly I would like to present the presence of the contrast between the skykline of modern buildings of Sydney and strong perspective view of classic trussed superstructure of Harbour Bridge based on 5-min long exposure in order to emphasize the contrast from the abstracted sky and sea by the long-exposure. Additionally, I would like to present not only the close distance view based on strong perspective view but also Profile View in order to complete the series of this bridge because generally architect design bridge structures, they never forget to prepare the profile view prior to various detail figures and drawings. This combination, close distance view and profile panoramic view with skyscrapers may complete the series of real bridge from the point of view of structurally and photographically.
