I assumed you added the letters HEF on the building? I don't' see them on the first shot anyway. If you didn't add them...what was that about?

Worlds smallest tripod?

Oh It's nice to have for small places and also for places that don't allow big tripods. Cheap too. You do need to get a head for it. It works with the standard Manfrotto style plates. It has limited movement though, it only moves forward or back on one axis. But, I have been able to manage, by moving and rotating the camera in different ways. I even was able to do a vertical panoramic with it the other day (had to remove the battery grip though).

Added in photoshop. This was a special project, this photo is being hand delivered to Hugh Hefner at the Playboy Mansion tomorrow evening. It is a 20x30 print and if he likes it there is a chance it will be displayed in the foyer. Apparently he has been missing Chicago and one of my acquaintances (who is delivering it tomorrow) thought this would be a nice gift for him. Interestingly, my acquaintance's first move was to ask the city to actually display the letters on the building, and they said that the cost depends on the time duration, and that it has a starting price of $20k to do it. So, she decided to get some help with it, and that's where I came in.

Awesome, now that is a conversation starter. :D

Although, she would have asked me to take the photo, regardless of whether I was going to photoshop those letters in.

I didn't really think anybody would notice those letters (let alone ask about them), props to you for looking at the details. :)

Uh I'm stupid. When I mentioned the limited movement above. that is because of the cheap head I bought with it, not because of the tripod. It's the end of the week, brain cells are fried. /thatsmyexcuse
