I played tourist in my own city today after something aNdMoRe said the other day to me. I went to what is known now as Sydney Tower Eye, or to anyone who has grown up in Sydney, or our state for that matter, Centrepoint Tower. It wasn't the best day for photography through a window with overcast skies, but below are my pics from today. I get a large discount if I go again within the next 7 days, so if it is sunny on Sunday, I might go in again.

Thanks for the mention, and these photos are really great:D Despite it being overcast today, city views are always amazing in that from a high angle you can see buildings and structures and green bits growing gradually smaller as they fade into the horizon. And, the distance also allows different areas to be easier distinguished and seen (though you do have a much better knowledge of Sydney than I do :p). I reckon it being sunny would definitely have a nice view, then you could possibly get a shot of sunlight bathing and reflecting off the city. Anyway hope I'm not saying too much, I love the photos you took today:)
