Holiday in the City...testing the Olympus Live Composite feature.

We had a wonderful, but COLD, time at the Holiday in the City!
I was anxious to test a feature on my new Olympus OMD EM5 M3 camera. The feature, called Live Composition, allow you to do a composite photo all processed within the camera. You do need to use a tripod. Once you've selected how long each exposure will be, you snap the initial image. The, when you are ready to start the composite, you snap the shutter button again, and the camera begins adding exposures. Each subsequent exposure captures only new light. You can see these added composites on the screen. Once you've reached the image you want, snap the shutter again and the image is saved. I used it to capture the fireworks image below. 
If you examine the image, you can see that there's wonderful detail in the fireworks. This feature is awesome!!
