    Default Australia Day in Perth

    This photo was just sent to me from a mate, I've attached the blurb that come with it - not sure wether it was photoshopped or not?



    Subject: FW: Great shot taken on Australia Day in Perth


    Check out this awesome photo - this one deserves an award. Fireworks,
    Lightning, Sunset, a Comet, and the greatest of Aussie icons, the Beach
    all in one image.

    In addition to the obvious features in the photo, look between the two
    displays of lighting up the sky to see the third - McNaught's Comet.

    The photo was taken just north of Hillary's Marina, which you can see
    the harbour wall on the left with fireworks being launched.


    Best regards,
    There was a young boy called Wyatt
    Who was awfully quiet
    And then one day
    He faded away
    Because he overused White

    Yeh, I thought about that. I reckon its been photoshopped. I was trying to figure out where the comet would have been, and I think it may have been further to the South than the West - but not sure about that

    If it was faked, it was good enough for NASA.
    They chose it as their Astronomy Pic of the day although they do acknowledge it has had some enhancement.

    Most people who think know that I'm crazy.

    It's a composite of 3 pictures digitally stitched together, but they were taken from the same spot at the same time. So I guess that make it 'real'

    It's probably a better impression of the view than any one picture could capture.

    Cheers

    Everyone has a photographic memory, some just don't have film.
