One of the challenges of photography is to attempt to present images from a different point of view. This is particularly the case when visiting popular places and landmarks. The Jefferson Memorial in Washington DC is no exception. There are probably a gazillion photos of the place and many show the same view. While in the DC area earlier this year I made it a point to visit the Memorial, since I had never done so on my many previous visits. Naturally, there was a large crowd of visitor's when I arrived, but I found it quite an experience as there were people from all over the globe, a virtual United Nations if you will. :-) It was nice to see. Anyhow, I shot many photos, some of which ended up being the typical travel shots that we've come to expect. My wife and I decided to make our way inside to get a closer look at the statue. I reeled off several more shots including the one below where I aimed above the crowd in an attempt to create something a little different.
This is a simple 3-bracket set of exposures that got my usual HDR processing. Hope you enjoy it.
Thanks for visiting!
