I shot this on the way home from work the other day. I didn't have my tripod with me, so I had to shoot it while I was leaning against a wall. Luckily, the lens is capable of doing 'vibration reduction' (VR), so I guess that also helped. I shot two exposures: one with a shutter speed of 1 sec and the other with a shutter speed of 1/2 second. What you see here is mostly the 1 sec exposure, except for the luminated windows of the office building, that's from the 1/2 sec photo, because they were a bit too hot at 1 sec.
The VR really works well. Don't use it with a tripod like I did. Forgot I had it on and half my pictures came out blurred. Works perfectly for hand held as witnessed in this superb shot. Excellent lighting and sharpness. Love the angle of the building and perspective.
