A Cold Empire Sandy

One of the fun things about the Olympus 7-14mm Digital Zuiko is the lens flare effects it produces when you shoot almost directly into the sun. This is another photo from my trip down to the Toronto Harbourfront this past weekend. We've not had a lot of sunshine this winter -- even less on weekends. Between how busy I've been with work and the weather I've not had my camera in hand much. On top of that the lack of snow in Toronto has made for some pretty grey scenes. I was happy to make it down to the lake where there is some blue!

Wow, what makes this photo is the rope that is holding onto the ship. Great eye on that one. Also, I'm going to go out on a whim and say this is an HDR. it's pretty impressive shot given it's taken directly into the sun. Is it an HDR? the details on the ship and rope aren't lost...
Iain Myrans: Hi Sean, Actually it's not an HDR, this lens/camera combination just produce some amazing dynamic range. It was shot with the Olympus Zuiko 7-14mm. I've learned that you have to get something in the foreground (like the rope/cleat) to make this lens sing. Thanks so much for your comment.
