Hey Jibba may I ask what Sony camera are you using? Your shots are just amazing! I've never expected to see such great quality from a Sony camera. I guess I'm a little biased of Sony products... I'm a Canon and Olympus kinda guy...

Ha yes I don't like Sony products that much anymore either. I received my camera a while ago as a gift; I think I got it back in 2003 so it is kind of old. It is not a DSLR, just a simple point-and-shoot. However, it does have some manual controls which is the only way I'm able to coax any decent shots out of it. The model number is DSC-V1. It produces decent photos I would say, but its performance is very lighting-dependent. None of these photos are "Photoshopped" in any way except for cropping (and sometimes rotating), so they are an accurate representation of the quality in case you were wondering.

Looks like the core is about 19 floors past the 3rd setback.
Fantastic progress!

BEAUTIFUL tower. I need to make it to Chicago soon. Or maybe I'll wait until 2016 and come to the Olympics? :-)
