    The last few days I've been going out at sunset to photograph stuff around town. Most of my good shots are of the Art Museum, but I also got some shots of the Ben Franklin Bridge and other things. All shots were taken with my Canon 30D, using either my Tamron 17-35mm f/2.8-4 lens or my Canon 50mm f/1.8. Enjoy :)

    The detail you captured in 3 and 6 is amazing, given the amount of light you still had! WOW. I want that 50mm prime lens now! And a new polariser! And an external flash! And a softbox! And and and ... (can't have it all, though :( --- going to England for a combined meet-up of two online forum, only 5 months after we've been to the Washington meet-up AND all those things ... even ANY of those things? No :( ... ah well).

    The time of day (night) was just PERFECT, the sky is of such a wonderful nightrobe-velvety colour!

    Photo 11 blows me all over, too, with illuminated Boathouse Row in the background like a white-pencil sketch... way cool.
