Wow this shot is second only l.a. at night, but you have to be there as pictures just don't do it justice.

Awesome photo. Show the city and environs beautifully, and so sharp for a night shot in an aircraft. Excellent.

You cannot imagine the joy I felt when I realised this was my town.

The photo does it more than justice, even giving the folks over at SkyScraperCity.com a run for their money!

This exposure is absolutely amazing -- the contrast of the city lights with the unlit geography of the city is awesome. the level of detail the shot is totally impressive.

Alex, can't find words for this photo. Melbourne is beautiful from the ground, yet even more so from above. Might I ask who was steering the plane... :) Hope to catch up with you one day for another spotting trip at Tullamarine. Cheers, Jonathan Mackojc

A masterpiece indeed Alex! This picture will surely put Melbourne on the 'map' as it surely is one of the most beautiful cities in the World! Sydney, watch out... :P Thanks for sharing, keep up the great work. Ted Mackojc
