    This is a great shot, Howard; especially given the cloudy day that you were working with. Is this also your 24-70/f2.8? How about aperture?

    No, I shot this one on a 14-24/f2.8 at 18mm at an F13 on a 3 shot bracket at 1/125, 1/60, 1/30. I used Photomatix to merge the shots in HDR.
    Thanks for the comments.
