The above photo was taken outside the QVB - Queen Victoria Building, Sydney, Australia. The shot was taken against the direct sunlight. A lot of round shape lens flare at the sun which I left as is.:)
The Queen Victoria Building, or QVB, is a Victorian building in the Sydney central business district, in Australia. The Romanesque Revival architecture building is 190 metres long by 30 wide, and fills an entire city block, bounded by George, Market, York and Druitt Streets. It is currently a shopping centre, but has had a variety of roles in its life. The QVB site was once home to the George Street Markets, and was selected for the construction of a grand government building. Architect George McRae designed the QVB in a Romanesque style to employ a great number of skilled craftsmen who were out of work due to a severe recession. The building was completed in 1898 and named the Queen Victoria Building after the monarch.
