The Jefferson

The Jefferson, originally uploaded by M. Rosenberg.

The Jefferson Memorial at night. Friday, August 14th to be exact.

I lived in Washington, D.C. (or just outside) for almost 5 years, yet it took until now (when I haven't lived there in 4 years) to finally visit the monuments at night. It's awesome the things you do and the places you'd never otherwise visit when you take up photography. It's so cool to see the world in a whole new light. Sappy, but true. And I'm sure all of you on Flickr already know this.

This is actually an HDR shot, so it's a combination of 5 exposures of the same shot. This technique worked well here, since the building was lit so brightly but the surroundings were so dark. Taken with my new Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 lens.
