Be Part of Harry Potter Magical Experience in Scintillating Sydney from November to March, Cheap Hotels in Sydney Offered by HotelTravelExpress

Perth, Western Australia (PRWEB) October 29, 2011

Sydney is the capital of New South Wales in Australia, and it is Australia?s largest city. The city, which is located on Australia’s south-eastern coast, is one of the cities of the world that had long known internationalisation, international trade and tourism, this being a result of its strategic geography as a coastal city.

The city of Sydney boasts of a magnificent harbour that strengthens its position as an economic hub because the Sydney harbour is one of the most important ports in the South Pacific.

Right from the early 19th century when the first settlers in Australia had barely penetrated the Australian interior, Sydney had established trade with the America, Africa, China, South Africa, the Pacific Islands and India through its seas, thus becoming one of the leading centres of intercontinental trade in the Asia-Pacific region.

Since that time up to this moment, Sydney had also been a centre of attraction to tourists from all around the world giving the city an international outlook as tourists find comfort and accommodation in cheap hotels in Sydney.

Sydney is also Australia?s most populous and most economically important state as it has over 4 million residents who populate the culturally dynamic city and drive its diversified economy, which thrives on tourism, manufacturing, international commerce, education and entertainment.

From this November, the city of Sydney will host the exhibition on the magical world of the famous Harry Potter series, which was created by the maverick British Teacher, J.K. Rowling, as the artistry and creativity around the Harry Potter brand which will be on exclusive display at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney.

The exhibition begins on Saturday November 19, and it will be on for five months as it will only end on Sunday, March 18, 2012. The Powerhouse Museum at which the exhibition will take place will be opened to the public between 9:30 am from Mondays to Thursdays, between 9:00 am and 9:00 pm on Saturdays and between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm on Sundays, while the exhibition lasts.

Visitors to the Museum will be treated to the environment of the fabulous world of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and its fictional yet living locations. Such places as the Gryfindor Common Room, the Great Hall, Hagrid?s hut and others that the Harry Potter phenomenon introduced at the beginning of this century will be at the Museum to delight tourists. The realities of this fantasy land are all brought to that spectacular city called Sydney: A city nestled between low hills and surrounded by a huge harbour that is full of beautiful bays and inlets.

Cooke Optics a Winner at the 63rd Annual Golden Globe Awards

Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) January 27, 2006

When director Ang Lee?s haunting and bittersweet adaptation of E. Annie Proulx’s story Brokeback Mountain took home the hardware as the Best Motion Picture Drama at the 63rd Annual Golden Globe Awards, it represented yet another ?win? for Cooke S4 Prime lenses, which continue to be chosen by many of Hollywood?s most successful and respected directors of photography and cinematographers.

Cooke Optics, a leader in both the cinemagraphic and the ultra-high-end professional photography markets, is honored to have been the lens of choice of directors of photography for many of this year?s nominees, including the motion pictures Brokeback Mountain, Pride and Prejudice, and Munich, as well as Rome and Entourage, two of HBO?s most popular and successful television series.

Brokeback Mountain stars Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal as young cowboys hired to work cattle on the title location. Cooke S4 Primes proved up to the challenges of shooting a motion picture that is so dependent upon the wide open, outdoor vistas of Wyoming, while at the same time portraying a very touching and tender personal story. With the help of the S4 Primes, this complicated and complex tale provides its audience with a deeper look into the hardships of love in its purest form during the 1960?s in America?s heartland.

?When Hollywood comes calling, Cooke answers the call with superb, precision lenses that bring the director and cinematographer?s vision to life,? said Les Zellan, President of Cooke Optics.

Cooke lenses are specified by many of Hollywood?s most successful and respected directors of photography and cinematographers to shoot scores of of the most acclaimed and profitable motion pictures seen on the big screen every year. Recent big screen releases shot using Cooke lenses include Jarhead, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and The Wedding Crashers. Cooke lenses consistently take innovation and prestige to a new level, symbolizing new heights of success and quality in the entertainment industry.

Cooke S4 Primes, renowned for their quality and precision, include focal lengths of 14, 16, 18, 21, 25, 27, 32, 35, 40, 50, 65, 75, 100, 135mm and the recently introduced 180mm with a close focus of only 4?3.? All focal lengths are color balanced, achieving excellent contrast and resolution over the full Super 35 format. Cooke S4 Primes give excellent definition in low light or shadow and warm image under all external, arc, or fluorescent lighting and feature Cooke?s acclaimed multi-coating, providing what?s known in the cine realm as the ?Cooke Look? ? a lush, velvety appearance with rich warm colors.

?On behalf of Cooke Optics, I would like to extend my congratulations to the cast and crew of Brokeback Mountain and to all of this year?s Golden Globe nominees,? noted Zellan. ?Cooke Optics is especially honored that its S4 Primes were able to capture and fully communicate director Ang Lee?s vision to the screen.?

Cooke Optics? S4 Prime Lenses have received a 1998 Cinec Award, a 1999 Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Scientific and Engineering Award for Optical and Mechanical Design, a 2000 Prime Time Emmy Award from the Academy of Arts & Sciences for Outstanding Achievement in Engineering Development and in 2001, two Queen?s Awards for Innovation and International Trade. Cooke lenses have been precision crafted in Leicester, England since 1894. That year, the Cooke legacy of innovative lens design began and has continued throughout the 20th century, from still photography through the development of acclaimed Cooke cine and television lenses. Today, state-of-the-art award-winning Cooke 35mm prime and zoom lenses are the premier lens choice for cinematography.

Cooke is a storied name in both cinemagraphic and the ultra-high-end professional photography markets. Known worldwide for their precision, exacting tolerances and superior quality, Cooke lenses are specified by many of the world?s most respected cinematographers in Hollywood.

My Harry Potter Books Ranking, Least to Most Liked

Article by K.S.

This list is full of spoilers, so if you haven’t read the Harry Potter book series and don’t want to know what happens, I suggest you skip my little commentary below and don’t read past this paragraph. I’ll be talking about, in order from least to most favorite: Sorcerer’s/Philosopher’s Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Goblet of Fire, Prisoner of Azkaban, Order of the Phoenix, Half-Blood Prince, and Deathly Hallows.

1) Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

The child-friendliest of the Potter books, but it’s still a fun read for this adult, and the first chapter does a fabulous job of peaking my interest and drawing me in.

2) Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

This is a darker and more grown-up story, with a creature that kills with eye contact and a quick-thinking Harry who (along with Ron) puts many puzzle pieces together at the end.

3) Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

I love that Harry doing a Patronus charm at 13 years old and the reveal that it was him who performed it at the lake. I suspected Lupin was helping Black get into Hogwarts, despite his seemingly gentle nature. The revel of Peter Pettigrew was one of the most surprising twists in the series.

4) Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

The fake Moody reveal was another huge surprise. Voldemort being transformed into an adult body, alongside Cedric’s death and Priori Incantatem, gives me chills every time I read it.

5) Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Although understandable, it wasn’t pleasant reading angry Harrry. But his teaching the D.A., fighting Death Eaters, and repelling Voldemort’s possession make up for it. My second favorite character, Luna, gets introduced here, and doubts surrounding Harry’s (and Dumbledore’s) claims about Voldemort within the wizarding world and the turnaround with the publication of the Quibbler article intrigue me.

6) Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Harry, dry sarcasm still intact, has emerged from the doubts & insults of Gof and OOtP. Romance/chest monsters and trying unknown spells aside, I loved his maturity when it came to friendship… no longer embarrassed by Luna and Neville, inviting Luna to Slughorn’s party, and going off to try and comfort Hermione when, ordinarily, he’d stick by Ron’s side.

7) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Harry finishes the growing up he started in the previous book. A climactic battle ends with his defeat of Voldemort, with plenty of action and suspense in the previous pages of the book to keep the tension taut. His “saving people” thing turns into a “saving every magical being” thing, from Draco to Griphook to the entire wizarding (and Muggle) world. Oh yeah, and he gets his happy ending.
