Moonlit Monuments Photo Tour

I participated in a photo tour last night to photograph four of our national monuments; the Lincoln Memorial, Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, Korean War Veterans Memorial, and the World War II Memorial. Although I photographed the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument at night last November (see November 6th post), I wanted to see how much my night photography and post editing skills had improved, and practicing and honing your craft is always a good thing, right? This was also an opportunity to photograph two additional monuments.

I was able to capture great photos, except at the Korean War Veterans memorial; the lighting conditions were not good at all. I’m including only one from that location- the best of the lot. I’m really happy with how the images from the World War II Memorial turned out, as the conditions were great!
