Standing in the middle of the intersection at the Chevron Building looking up in Houston, Texas, USA. When you are photographing here they send out a guard and try to tell you that you can't photograph the building even tho you are standing on public property aka the sidewalk.

I was surprised when I saw that this was a 25 second exposure. I was standing in the middle of the intersection looking up and handholding the shot. Goes to show how well the Olympus IBIS is

[user]Cyrilda[/user] This one probably looks familiar because you commented (asked about my technique) on my other shot in voting that was taken from the same location.

Hello from the critique club

An interesting image that meets the challenge.

A familiar landmark that has featured recently in another challenge, whilst this has its merits I have to say, of the two, I much prefer the other one. This is a great viewpoint that fits the challenge brief perfectly, so well done on that score. How on earth you have managed to hand hold a shot pointing upwards for 25 seconds and still get such sharp results is way beyond my understanding. I regularly take hand held long exposures by means of string attached to the bottom of the camera but there is no way I could go beyond a couple of seconds and get these sort of results. Unfortunately for me, the shot is badly let down by the OOF spots on the front of the lens and all the blown highlights especially the one in the centre that dominates everything to the detriment of the well exposed parts of the frame. A great idea Ronnie, with a little more care in execution it could be even better
