    I had 5 hours today to "waste" and I thought I was going to have a great time taking pictures, but not having my wife with me (I dropped her off at the Portland Antique Show) I had to force myself take a few at least.
    OMD with the 12-50.

    Good way to make use of a gray day. I know the feeling! Thanks for sharing.

    P.S. I'm moving to PDX next week!

    Thanks!

    Portland is the coolest city in my book. Good luck with the moving part.

    Congrats!

    We moved here in 2009 from outside of DC (Fairfax VA) :eek::eek::eek:
    What a place that is! (and not in a good way)

    Nothing wrong with a gray day - it helps one focus on less obvious subjects! I'm curious - did you postprocess the Division Pl. shot heavily? Thanks for sharing.

    RevBob - Thank you!

    dhazeghi - the whole series was done with just the "clarity" bar moved to +50

    Nothing else. Shot raw.

    PS: I have to correct myself, 2 of the murals I also adjusted the highlight bar a bit to the left.
