    I had another 'room with a view' this week. This time the Sydney Intercontinental level 25. They called it the 'Opera House View Suite' - there was a building in the way of the view. However the view of Circular Quay (which is rectangle) was spectacular - I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    Meanwhile back in Hobart the Hot House of Ideas is an art installation for the Dark Mofo Festival. It has been built by students at the University of Tasmania to host creative and innovative events on the future of the State.

    Yes Nick. Turned off all lights 1/2 closed the curtains but you can still see some light reflected from inside. Should have used a polariser but it was not visible in- camera so thought I'd got away with it.

    Update: I am glad you pointed that out - I found I had a better frame (lower exposure) with less light feedback in the room. Thanks for the feedback :)
