Australian Museum

I can't remember the last time I have visited a museum. But the Australian museum have a free entry for two days so I though to myself why not make the most of the gift. I was really surprise by the vast collections of Australian culture on display.

But more importantly I was there to check out the work of nature photographers. They have an exhibition on show of the best nature photographer from around the world. There were some amazing photos on show. Some photos were over 10 years in the making. No Instantgram here of-course.

I disvovered from the meta data were most of the photos on show are from a DSLR and non from a mirrorless camera. Hey what's going on here. Is there a ignorant about mirrorless camera from the judges or the photos come of out the mirrorless camera not worthy of making to finalized selection? From what I have seen online with mirrorless cameras they are equal on par with most DSLR.

Enough complaining about the judges and lack of mirrorless entrants to the competition but the view from the 4th level of Sydney CBD was amazing. Too bad they open at the worst hour so I couldn't come back for sunset at the Australian Museum. Oh well maybe they have a night exhibition on one day and I'll be there to get the shot of Sydney CBD from Australia Museum angle.
