U.S. History (Jefferson Memorial D.C.)

Uploaded: March 27, 2011


This angle actually turned out decent. I had to angle the shot this way due to the overwhelming amounts of people visiting this monument. It was the first day of the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington D.C. The feeling of history and freedom tickles your soul when seeing the mass beauty of our U.S. History before your eyes.

I did do a little HDR work with the editing of this photo.

Exif: F Number: 5.6, Exposure Bias Value: 1.33, ExposureTime: 1/8 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 100, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 17.00 mm, Model: NIKON D90

Thank you Stan!! I had to angle the shot this way due to the over crowded mobs of people in my way. The Washington D.C. Cherry Blossom Festival was under way.
