Joakim - the light does look great and the second one in particular has a very nice mood. But... what happened to all the snow you guys had?
vovkinson - All the images were hand-held, but that one wasn't braced against a pole, so I bumped up the ISO to 1250 to get a reasonable shutter speed. Perhaps I could have tried Dan's (thrice) recent technique and left it at ISO 160, underexpose by three stops, then recovered in post. Anyway, we were there more really to look than do a serious photo project, therefore the tripod didn't come along. The spot where we were standing had a street light nearby, but it was about a stop darker than the city hall building in the background. For the 'portraits' the brush in Lightroom was used to boost the foreground exposure between 1-1.5 stops, along with some contrast, shadow and clarity tweaks to reduce the harshness of the light.
Gary - very nice, and an interesting location. The 21SEM sure is an impressive lens.
