Here's my hope that the outlook on technology is anything but the outlook here on MIT. The irony is only apparent if you're familiar with the recent happenings at MIT: that dome is fully lit for the first time in decades, and the power required to do so is less than required by two hair-dryers. This is part of MIT's initiative toward improving energy conservation and creating new viable sources of energy.

Like I said... here's hoping the outlook isn't as bleak as this shot.

There isn't much alteration done to this one:

Convert to B&W
Increase brightness by a hair
Increase Contrast
Tilt so the horizon appears largely flat.

I'm also guessing at the shutter speed since my camera does not like to record them, for some reason.

I found this lacking interest. Technically not too bad though.

I would prefer a more interesting angle.
