I find that a silhouette can reveal a person's energy. Here is another example taken at Wintergarden in New York City's Financial District. This man seems to have a very relaxed attitude about life.

Back to some shots with the Olympus Pen E-p1 and the 17mm pancake lens. I find the E-p1 to function very nicely in low light circumstances, and shooting RAW you have a lot of control over the dynamic range. In this shot the background was very bright while the foreground was fairly dimly lit. By adjusting the curves I managed to get detail in both areas.
