Widen Your Point of View

I know, I know. It’s entirely possible that I spoke too soon about the best shot of the Air Force Memorial. I take it all back and throw this out instead: There is no best shot. I will say this however, a memorial of this size really lends itself to a wide angle lens or even a fisheye lens such as j6 photo has used here. His Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 lens was perfect for the job here, not only because it captures the entire memorial but also lends to the swooping spires and exaggerates their lines. I could do without the bent human in the foreground, but sometimes you’re just not patient enough for people to clear out of your viewfinder (or sometimes people rudely step into it). Santa, if you’re listening, I’ll take a new Canon EF-S 10-22mm lens. Oh wait. I guess I’m Santa seeing as how I buy my own Christmas presents.

    Is that an alien in the foreground? Heh, nice shot.
