Taken at the base of the Washington monument looking up. I like the simplicity and symmetry of this picture. I played with the saturation a bit. It almost has the illusion of looking down a blue walled hallway.

I admit I was a little blocked when it came to what I was going to shoot. Originally I was going to do something with the Jefferson memorial, with its nice curve of columns it makes a nice subject. Of course when I saw that it also won the previous Perspectives challenge it kind of threw a wrench into my plan. After looking through the almost 100 pictures I had taken for this, I just kept coming back to this one. I cropped to the top of the monument, which was basically flat at that point anyway, to kind of make it appear like a road up into the sky. Had I to do it all over again I think I would have shot it at the corner to add some depth to the image. As it is, there is just not enough texture to the top half of the image.

Interesting. It definitely meets the challenge. I thought I wanted to see the very top, but then understand that would kill the title. There is very little to see here, but yet it almost keeps me looking at it. That is pretty cool.

Interesting perspective! It's a little distracting that the image weighs more on the left hand side, but I like your image.

Interesting approach to the challenge. Personally, I would have liked to have seen a bit more in order to figure out what this is.

It has perspective, but it doesn't interest me.

Wish I had taken this when I was there... I found it interesting about the color shift in the stones between the pre & post Civil War construction... This is for me a wonderful perspective on an incredible monument to a "Father of a Nation.
