    While I was in D.C., I also tried experimenting with HDR on some other familiar landmarks. This is harder than you'd think, as you have to avoid the attention of the park police, who get a bit fidgety about tripods. All were shot using 6 shots bracketed at 2 stops apart, assembled and downconverted with Photoshop, with the exception of the Capitol, which was shot on a 3 shot bracket, untripoded, because the police made me put the tripod away. The camera is an EOS 20D, the wide lens is a Canon EF 10-22, the lone telephoto is a Sigma 70-200. The success if varying. The Lincoln Memorial looks a bit wonky, but keep in mind that the sun is in the process of setting just to the right of where the frame cuts off -- this is shooting into the sun. HDR does a pretty good job of managing this!
