Lincoln Memorial
Lincoln Memorial
Washington D.C. The monuments are fantastic examples of interesting architecture. In addition to the normal shots I spent time looking in unusual places to shoot such as directly overhead.

Thanks, again everyone. Jim, I was standing on the floor just looking up. Actually I wanted a shot of Abe sitting in his chair and there were far too many people in the way for a clean shot so I just looked up and thought how interesting the ceiling was.

I've looked at this image several times now and I am amazed, it just jumps out at me. Looks almost like a drawing. Can you share the details of the shot? What kind of post processing did you do if any? If so I would love to see a before and after. Love this image...

Thank you Tom, the image is so graphic like I said it looks like a photorealistic drawing or painting, that's why I asked if there was processing. I didn't want to make any assumptions. That it's a photo without alterations makes it even more amazing to me. A striking image, congrats.
