Four From DC

I realized a bit late I should have picked a different title but hindsight is 20/20 and I have been very busy with work.

This is towards the end of my photographic journey in Washington DC and shockingly not on the National Mall. I was walking back to my car which was parked on Virginia Avenue. I have attempted to shoot the United States Institute of Peace building before but no luck. This time the light was hitting it right and I really liked how I got their logo into the frame. I originally shot this at a few angles but this one came out the best.

All the images this week were shot for HDR but this is the only one to actually be edited as a HDR photo. Architecture as a rule tends to work well for HDR which is why I went ahead and did this one in HDR.

Editing was done in Aurora 2017 and I manually played with the sliders and did whatever. Then it was into Photoshop to do some local working with dodging and burning. Once I was happy I hit save and done.

I like the photo and had to know more about this institute, so I googled it. It seem that the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) is an American non-partisan, independent, federal institution that provides analysis of and is involved in conflicts around the world. The Institute was established by an act of U.S. Congress that was signed into law by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. The board is appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. Its headquarters, in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood of Washington, D.C., sits at the northwest corner of the National Mall near the Lincoln Memorial and Vietnam Veterans Memorial. There is much more information about USIP. I am glad the photographer brought of this piece of history. I enjoyed!
