Lincoln Memorial

If I had to pick a shot from the night of shooting on the Mall in Washington DC this would be it.  Lincoln is lit up brighter and I focused on the statue and fired away to get the shot.  Editing this was a bit of a nightmare because of the sky which showed every ounce of noise in the picture but after some serious time in Photoshop I got it clean without destroying the rest of the detail in the image.  I may consider printing this one for framing.

I like the photo. When you enlarge the photo, the structure is very elegant. It would be a nice picture to hand in an office. I was amazed at the number of people milling around in the dark.
