Nikki in DC - Update #2

My late night of holiday partying doomed my idea to get out early and do some sunrise shooting with Nikki and while the day nearly got away from me I did swing by the Capitol on my way home. It was misting and rainy which is one of my favorite 'looks' for the Capitol Dome, the lights look cool in a mist/fog setting. I ended up focusing (pun intended) on some found reflections on the eastern plaza above the relatively new Capitol Visitor Center. Enjoy!

I am sure someone needs this. This appears to be a really nice one with a guarantee and a factory AI ring.

these are great Tony I really like the first one and the last one - actually that last reflection with the dome slashed diagonally and half blurred makes a strong statement - that deserves to be full size.

that's for Curtis - he's always saying he only wants them if they've been authentically converted.

Curtis - nice to see you back - even if only briefly and with your photos locked (was that a subconconscious slip - that'd be up your alley)

Ben, I'm addicted to high performance computers!

The village is in the opposite direction in this image. There's literally nothing but farm land as far as you can see beyond the trees in this image.

Yea, they do. I'll make sure it's turned on, thanks. The only thing is though, the spams never actually post a comment, I just get an email indicating that they did. But whenever I check the posts there's never a comment, weird.


Thanks for the tip Laura, I just made the changes and it works real well.

Thanks Paul. And you're exactly right. For our 25th wedding anniversary a few years ago, we rented a log cabin in one of our state parks for a few days. That evening we were sitting on the front porch when we both turned to each other and said, "what are we doing here"? We could be home sitting on our own front porch and liking it better! I guess we're just hermits.

When people on this thread posts pics from these exotic places I think, MAN, I'd love to go there. But I know just as soon as I did, I'd want to go home. Too bad we can't just beam in to some of these places, shoot for a few hours, and then beam home again.

Leighton - as a lens addict, I can sympathise. Actually I have a bit of a problem with mobile phones too.

My fixation with the 24mm f1.4 is stirring up again..... but I'm fighting it.
