    These didn't come out as sharp as I would have liked them to. There was quite a bit of light haze in the sky as well.

    c & c welcome, I'm open to improvement.

    For those interested, first photo taken with the 12-35mm. Other two taken with the oly 40-150mm

    They give a good panoramic view of Brisbane looking eastward, perhaps a little too far away from the city centre to really capture the tall buildings.
    There are some wonderful vantage points to capture the city from the cliffs near south bank, I think your 12-35 would be a great choice there.

    I'd like to try taking a tripod up to Mt Coot-tha and do some longer exposures. I was there back in early December and took a few shots with my E-M5 and 45/1.8, but I was doing them handheld at ISO 1600 and about 1/20-1/30 sec so they didn't come out anywhere near as clean looking as yours.

    Do you mean around the kangaroo point cliffs? Here are a few from a while back taken with my canon 600d:

    Maybe we need to do a night time photo "walk"—hire a minibus and do Kangaroo Point cliffs, Mount Cootha lookout, and any other place we can think of and just take night time shots of Brisbane.

    there's actually a lesser known lookout that I've meaning to go to for some night or sunset shots. It's called bartley's hill reserve near ascot/clayfield. It has quite a nice view, and is a little closer than mount cootha lookout.

    An update to the set. Taken with the 12-35mm:

    If I were to go back again, there would a few things I would try to improve. I need to find a better position, maybe a taller tripod (to get over the fence), maybe an UWA.

    The sharpness does bother me as much as;
    -missing the end of the bridge on the right hand side
    -the keystone effect on the taller buildings

    There was fence in the way, that made it hard for me to get a good position and angle of the bridge.
