Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Perspective IV (Basic Editing)
Collection: Best
Camera: Canon PowerShot S2 IS
Location: Washington, DC
Date: Nov 18, 2006
Aperture: 4.5
ISO: 50
Shutter: 6s
Galleries: Cityscape, Architecture
Date Uploaded: Nov 18, 2006

Shot at the same time as my Postcard II challenge entry:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/587/120/428857.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/587/120/428857.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Editing was just levels, sharpening, and noise reduction. Oh, and a little cropping.

First time ever I've broken 6 in two challenges in a row. :) And got a new 2nd and 4th best out of them to boot.

Very nice and great for the challenge. Isn't that an amazing place? Not only just to photograph at night but the whole vibe of it. It's one of those places that gives you goosebumps as soon as you step foot onto the grounds. Congrats on the great score! :)

WOW, I like this one much better than the postcard shot (but that one's nice, too :-). Congratulations on two really great challenge entries and high scores! This is really nice the way the composition emphasizes the curves of the pillars. Way to go!

Wonderful perspective and curves in this photo. I think the only dampening factor is the lighting, which I realize was probably just about impossible in this location (been there myself a few times). Unfortunately, the bright footlamps draw attention away from the beautiful soft lines. Overall really nice shot, though.

I'm wondering if this is Jeff's (based on the Postcard entry). At any rate, it's a lovely depiction of this very gorgeous monument.

Very serene and contemplative. You must go late at night to be able to take this image with no one else there.
