Great shot Malcolm... Is it HDR?

Thank you. None of my photos are HDR - I don't even know how that works. I just used a long exposure because it was quite dark. It was just on first light.

Great shot all the same. HDR works by taking the same shot 3 times. 1 of correct exposure then another 1 stop underexposed and another 1 stop overexposed or take a bracketed shot if your camera has auto bracketing (same result). Then upload all pics into an HDR software package such as photomatix and tone map it. it's good fun to play with the tones. Just do a google for HDR photography and you'll get loads of info :D

Thank you. The Opera house is a wonder and it couldn't be in a better location. No matter how many times I see it I am always surprised at how beautiful it is around Sydney Harbour.
