    I'm pretty proud of this shot. This is my 1st camera more advanced than a point and shoot. I am very much an amateur but have been doing a lot of reading. This was with the kit lens 12-50mm.

    I was walking working in London and happened to be going home the following day so I was walking around. I ended up next to a USA Today photographer and watched the lighting event. Just hand held, but propped on a wall.

    I set the OM-D to Shutter Priority (S) and then increased the exposure time until I was happy with the ISO level 1000 I think. I tested shots beforehand and liked what I saw. Here are some more, one is a blurred shot of David Beckham in a speedboat lighting the bridge :smile: Thanks for the positive feedback! These print really well too. I've enlarge them to 11x14 and they look great.
