Nestled In The Turret
This is from my wanderings in the Dupont Circle neighborhood in Washington, DC. The area I was near is called Embassy Row because it’s where a lot of embassies are located in DC because it’s close to the US State Department and the White House. A lot of them are older mansions that have been converted as working embassies or diplomatic residences. I have no idea what this one is. I just liked the turret. Reminds me of a castle.
This was shot with my Nikon D810 and the Sigma 24-105 Art lens. I did all the base adjustments in Lightroom then went to town on it in Photoshop. I had to do a lot of healing and cloning on this one so bonus points if you figure out where I did it. I also discovered the latest version of Photoshop CC fixed the healing brush! I shall no longer curse Adobe (least for this release). Once I had the image adjusted for contrast and lighting I wanted to subtly bump up the building texture because it looks cool. So I loaded up Intensify CK and then went picked a filter. Quick layer mask to brush in what I wanted and called it down. Very happy with how it came out.
