Monument Rising

Might have a couple more shots left for this stuff but this may be the last image from that shoot. I have a backlog of new stuff to go through and with the various bits and bobs I shoot on my meanderings that I engage in.

I have actually shot the Washington Monument before at nearly identical spot. At the time I had no native Sony FE lenses and was using some adapted Minolta glass that I sold. This one was shot on the lovely Sony FE 24-240 lens that I really like as a one size fits all type of lens.

Not much going on editing wise. I played with a few things that I have never really done before but they didn’t make it into the final edit. I did give content aware fill on Photoshop a whirl. Looked great until I blew it up to 100% and realized that the flag poles weren’t even remotely lined up. So that go scraped. So I had to manually get the image straight which I admittedly struggle with. So I hope its close enough.

Full resolution here.

  1. You take such nice photos. Almost as good as being there. If you could only bring the lovely fragrant of the flowers with the photos that would be great. I have enjoyed your flower power shots. Have been so busy with work, I finally stopped to “see” the flowers. I look forward to your next series.
