One more from the Lincoln Memorial, this time with yours truly in there metering the shot. The sheer size of the place is so amazing... so solid, clean and simple. I have been there dozens of times but every visit I can spend hours there. This must be what the old Greek temples on the Acropolis must have looked and felt like. Anyway, this is one of my favorite shots from the evening, another exposure nightmare. Between the down-facing spotlights and the up-facing floodlights, and the orange glow of the sky, getting the balance right was difficult. I tried processing a BW version of this shot, but I really prefer this color version.

Awesome perspective once again......considering all the different lighting I think this looks great!

Excellent exposure on this shot. And another good perspective. These DC shots are coming out great.

I like how you're practically upside down in the top right corner. You almost feel like you have to get your balance first before you can look at this properly. Very nice!

Beautiful prospective... you are so tall but so little near this big colums :O)

Having you in the shot really helps give a sense of scale. Another favorite of mine.
