Default Mid-Day in the middle of downtown..

Shot this with the E-PL1 and 9-18 f4-5.6 Digital Zuiko (DSLR version) with the MMF-2 adaptor. Used the VF-2 eyelevel finder flipped out so I would not have to point my head straight up shooting it. Switched to RAW for this shot because I could see there'd be a need for additional post processing later.

Dialed in -.7 exposure compensation, which resulting in shading most of the buildings directly around the sun and still blew a little of the cloud details between the buildings. At home later in Photoshop CS5 and ACR I lowered the exposure more, enough to bring back the blown detail in the clouds, then used the fill light sliders to lighten the shadows and bring back detail to the buildings and used the noise sliders as needed for the shadow areas.

Very nice, shooting straight up would be a heck of a neck strain.

It's a real cool shot, Greg. Nice PP work as well.
