Washington Monument, Washington DC

I had just finished putting my circular polarizer on my lens when I saw the airplane take off. I quickly snapped this shot, and luckily the CPL was in the right position. Not much fancy here, just good old fashioned equipment work, decisive timing, and some Lucis layering to show detail on the monument itself. It’s hard to see the detail of it normally, so I’m allowing this one to show in full res. Enjoy it.

Pictures, regardless of how they are created and recreated, are intended to be looked at. This brings to the forefront not the technology of imaging, which of course is important, but rather what we might call the eyenology (seeing). – Henri Cartier-Bresson
