Preserver of the Union
I normally let photos sit for a bit so I’m not emotionally attached to them but as I was dumping these from the CF card I took a quick peek and I had to just go and publish it. Its the iconic shot of Abraham Lincoln that almost everyone takes so I don’t claim to be special here. I just really liked how it turned out. I was dead in front of the statue, planting my tripod, focusing and firing off the shots to make sure I got it. This is all natural lighting from the building itself. Just used a long exposure to get it. While I’m a huge fan of my micro four-thirds cameras, the full frame goodness of my Canon 5DMK2 makes itself known. There is just a richness to the images that the camera produces that I haven’t seen touched except by other full frames and then moving beyond them to medium format.
