    46. The Comcast Center is the building under construction. It is now officially the tallest structure in the city. And if you're wondering, the leaves are yellow from the illumination of a street light. It's not Autumn in Philadelphia yet ;-)

    On Monday, we were back in D.C., this time properly equiped with tripods and good weather. We decided to do our night shooting from the Jefferson Memorial while the light was good. We also revisited the WWII Memorial with our tripods.

    48. The Washington Monument, as seen from in front of the Jefferson.

    49. Again, a little later in the evening

    50. Some typical-looking shots of the Jefferson:

    Here's my last batch, folks. Actually, I still have about 2 to 4 more shots to post (panoramas and/or HDRs that I haven't processed yet). But those will have to wait till tomorrow or later.

    52. Washington & Jefferson. I took my camera on tripod up to the area of the memorial where all the columns are, but I got a scowly look from one of the security guards, and I had a feeling he was just about ready to yell at me the second I put my tripod down. So I wandered off to the side where I found a neat spot kind of hidden by the bushes with a nice view of the Washington Monument.

    53. Back at the WWII Memorial. A famous quote from FDR.

    54. Facing the other way, you get the Lincoln Memorial in the background ;-)

    55. This was sort of an accidental shot. I was fooling around with Joe and pushed the shutter button while holding the camera on the tripod above the ground. I think the camera moved just the right amount to create a neat-looking abstracty shot of the fountains.

    56. The guy wouldn't move, so I just set it to a long exposure hoping he'd at least come out as a ghost. Luckily he did. I kind of like it this way.

    57. Looking upwards at one of the "Atlantic" / "Pacific" arches at either end of the memorial.

    And that's it for now! I'll have a few more coming along tomorrow or some time. What is there to expect? How about a pano of Union Station, a 360deg pano of Washington and Jefferson, a composite shot of traffic on the Ben Franklin Parkway, and maybe--just maybe--an HDR pano of the Washington Monument (if I can get it right). So stay tuned ;-)

    Enjoy.

    You have SO many great shots in here, Sky! And I really like that first one of me!!!

    There are quite a few I'd like to have the files to so I can get prints. :)

    And I seem to remember a few that are missing from here, mister! :p

    Here's one of my panos. This is a superlarge one that I stitched from about 17 shots, which I took with my 50mm lens. Click on the image (or here) to view the large version (2MB, 6000px wide)

    Here's another. This is a composite of two shots I took on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philly (one shot for the traffic on the left, one for the traffic on the right). Enjoy ;-)

    Here's another shot for y'all. This one's a panorama I did outside of Union Station in D.C.
