      Great Hong Kong night shot!
      Maybe you can use Diorama Mode in this situation.

      - You're right! Hadn't thought of that. Next time I'm there...

      Be carefull using the Diorama on shots like this. Since its focus-effect is always horizontal (and not rotated with the camera) it only works well if you shoot in landscape format.

      excellent composition and exposure - the buildings that dominated the scene when I visited twenty years ago are now lost in the middle here

      Thanks all. If I was able to open the window a little more (or if the friend I was staying with got the windows of his apartment cleaned a little more frequently), you would have been treated to the full panorama. Without doubt for me, the best cityscape in the world.

      Really nice cityscape and totally agreed with you. Great use of the EP-2!! I'm actually debating on purchasing either the EP-2 or Panasonic GF-2.

      Great shot again!!!
