United States Air Force Memorial
The monuments in DC are twice as spectacular when viewed at night and the United States Air Force Memorial is no exception. This shot was taken with five different exposures and then combined for one beautiful shot in HDR.

Out and about with my camera on a Fall-like day.

Remembering summer……

Remembering summer……

Where did the long hot summer go?


It’s officially over and it left us in a flash! Pools are closing and trips over the Bay Bridge to the shore are winding down. (Don’t worry Rehoboth, I like you in the off season too!)

But, I have to tell you….I’m ready for fall! Cooler crisp air, long walks with coffee, colorful foliage, and the smell of firewood burning.

Nice!

Stormy Sunset over Rehoboth Bay
This photo was taken at sunset near Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. I couldn’t resist the urge to try and capture the waning sunlight as it struggled to poke through the angry clouds of an approaching storm. Five different exposures were taken to later combine for a rather moody shot using High Dynamic Range (HDR). The multiple mosquito bites received were well worth the shot!

First Entry!

Welcome to my first experimentation with the blogosphere! 

I live in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington, D.C. and have a huge passion for the art of photography. I hope to share my love of this art form with photographs from around the DC area or wherever my travels take me. 

My main concentration is primarily landscapes and architecture.  But my new found discovery and growing appreciation is for the area of High Dynamic Range (HDR).  Using this photographic technique on my compositions has produced spectacular results!

It all comes down to having the right equipment, good software, and a keen eye for composition to make that photograph interesting and memorable for the viewer. I welcome your critiques, thoughts on technique and composition, or general comments.

Let’s share!
