View from the Lookout Building of Mt Wellington, Hobart, Tasmania :: HDR

Many of you were wondering what's the view was like up there from the shot i posted yesterday. Here's one shot to kill your curiosity right away ;) This was captured with the camera pressed against the glass panel. I couldn't look through the view finder as there is a barrier from where we stand to the glass. Luckily it turned out pretty good.
