    Taken in the middle of Tropical Storm Isaac from the hotel balcony up 24 floors..that was windy as hell. The tripod was shaking pretty badly in the wind and it almost tipped over when shooting in portrait mode. :eek:

    ~10s exposures with 9-18mm on G5. (Much nicer for long exposures than my E-P1 and G1..haven't found noise problems yet)

    And a few variations with different LR presets:

    3. Probably my fav for composition and effect. Faux HDR preset to bring out some color and bring out some stronger blacks.

    4. B&W (not my fav to lose the colour but thought it was worth a shot)
