Let me know what you think about this image. Its really different from what I usually do but I still really like it and it was a total accident. I didn’t even know that I took this until the other day when I was looking for another image to edit.
So on the same foggy morning that I took this picture of the Washington Monument, I was out with my camera on my tripod shooting. Obviously. But I actually went to the tidal basin with the intentions of shooting the Martin Luther King Jr Memorial. When I arrived, I saw that the fog was so amazing that I couldn’t resist taking a few shots of the Tidal Basin and the Jefferson Memorial. So in the series of images, this was the very last image I took right before I began shooting MLK JR. memorial. I know I was bracketing my shots because this was a long exposure and I’m assuming I just got impatient for the last shot to finish and just picked up my tripod. Pretty cool, huh?
My favorite part is how aligned everything is. I literally must have lifted the tripod up straight in the air for that to happen. I didn’t do much in processing either. I just added a little bit of contrast and that was it.It’s basically straight out of the camera. I also like how it’s kind of monotone grayish blue. What do you think. Should I try some more experimental long exposures? For some reason, it reminds me of this meme from SpongeBob SquarePants of Mr Krab. Like you just woke up from a really long nap and you don’t know what time it is, what day it is, or what is actually going on. LOL
My settings for this image was F/32 at 2 seconds ISO 50.
