The reflections on the shiny marble floors combined with the large windows casting strong shadows are very rewarding for a photographer. I caught this scene in a walkway between two office towers with my Olympus “Pen” E-p2 and the Lumix 20mm f1.7 lens.

I recently decided to go out with my Canon G9 again, since I needed to travel light, but wanted to have the flexibility from a slightly wide to fairly strong telephoto lens. In bright light the G9 performs nicely. Here is a scene from Wintergarden, World Financial Center, New York City.
