Default Lights at Dusk

Early evening, one building, lights, moon and a late hour window cleaner. E-M1 and 40-150mm f2.8..

Opera House once...

No, make that twice..

At this point, I shifted the ISO up to 1000, did some rather heavy Blacks and Shadow lifting, and kept the noise slider down to retain as much detail as possible, at the expense of a little bit of grain. Works for me..

The 40-150mm f2.8 at 95mm, handheld at 1/15 second..

Federal Reserve Bank, from a safe distance. Lots of cameras and security walk those grounds..

Another super series of shots. I think my favorite is the first one, with the unusual angle, and excellent color and detail. The window washer was the icing on the cake. Good job, Greg.

My favorite are the second two shots, and especially the third, where it is the darkest object that actually captures my attention.
