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... #3444445

My continued thanks to those commenting new.

Duane, there was not much post processing here. Basically just some contrast adjustments and equalization. #3444919

Duane B. Blocker 10/13/2006 10:30:42 AM

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. #3444936

Description

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.
