f/11, 1/250s, 40 mm, ISO 400. Darkened sky, no other adjustments. This is in Downtown Detroit looking at the Renaissance Center from the courthouse where we went to get our marriage license.

Congrats on both the 1st place and the POTD! Great shot of a great building. Having grown up in Michigan it does my heart good to see the old town depicted so nicely, since Detroit takes so much @#$% in the media! :)
