I went to The Residences' parking like you suggested Imre, but I couldn't really find a good spot with no boarding in the way.

Anyway, I set up my tripod on the roof of my Tahoe to get a higher vantage point

Ooops, I see it now, closer to the bottom than I though.

Thanks ZZ & malec. I just use a tripod/remote and 10 secs on shutter priority... dunno much more than that.

I enjoyed myself anyway standing outside the sunroof while being driven around with veil in the air and all

Very quiet neighbourhood... for now at least.

Just save the pic to your computer, and when you right click and choose 'summary' and 'advanced' you get all the info about camera make and settings from the EXIF data.

Can someone summarize Sky Tower's PDF's new info in bullet points, please?

You used a 14mm lens!? Does your camera have a full range sensor? That seems awfully wide, even for shooting a skyscraper.
