Jefferson Memorial

A quick post and dash today, friends. This week has landed me in the very busy zone while I work on 2 upcoming projects simultaneously. Normally I'd be looking forward to the weekend but 1 of these projects takes place then so... I'll be catching up to your creative postings during odd hours. Today's image was taken during the Summer of 2011 on one of my trips to the nations capitol. Previously I posted this inside look of the Jefferson Memorial and geez, that seems so long ago. A truckload of images have been processed since then. :-)

This is one of those images that I had looked at many times but passed it over since this place has been photographed more times than anyone can count. This time I decided the image had been in the file long enough. After running it through HDR Efex Pro and masking out many of the people, it was given a little Topaz Adjust and an S-curve to soften the harsh midday light.

The staircase was initially fairly crowded but I used 4 other images and brushed in some areas with no people. The guy in the lower right is probably wondering what happened to the 2 ladies that were following him. :-)

Have a great day and we'll catch up to you soon.
