  St Patricks Cathedral, 5th Ave, Manhattan  
     
St Patricks Cathedral on 5th Avenue in Manhattan has spectacular architecture. But, it is very dark inside and tripods were not permitted (my last visit at least). Capturing a perfect handheld shot of this masterpiece is a big challenge. Thanks to image stabilization, I was able to capture a sharp .5 second exposure that is nearly squared with the building's structure despite a with-barrel-distortion focal length selected.
