    The Gothic Bank

    As part of my quest for images around Melbourne for the DVD I walked through a bank in Collins St with classic gothic architecture. You cannot photograph inside the banking chambers (for security reasons) but out the back they have a chamber they call The Cathedral where people can spend some quiet time and photography is allowed.

    C & C welcome.

    Maybe a teensy bit overexposed...and maybe not. I can't seem to make up my mind but I know there is something slightly irregular about the exposure to suit my tastes...

    Looks like a neat place. I was watching a program on the tube the other night where they were showcasing an American couple moving to Melbourne and buying a house in what they called an "upscale" neighborhood...$900,000 US for what here would sell for $120-160,000 US...how does anyone afford to live in Australia?

    Very cool, I do see what I think Chris is seeing. Almost looks as if I can't quite see all the detail due to exposure but does not really look over exposed if that makes sense. Nice job at what looks like a possible tricky exposure.

    Yep, this was a tricky one as all the tones were very similar and all the detail very fine but it had a peace and tranquility about the place all the same.

    Living 'down under' isn't too bad on a daily basis but housing prices are very strong mainly due to lack of supply. I should add that property prices in fact went up during the GFC and not down like most in the USA and Europe.

    It's not too bad if you're already in the market but I doubt my two teenage boys will ever be able to afford a house anywhere near the city (Brisbane). I was out and about last weekend looking (for no reason) at land prices. A new estate on Brisbane southside has 400 sqm blocks for $300,000
