I’ve seen many photos of the fountain in Dupont Circle, but very few have caught my eye. They look more like tourist snapshots than a photographer’s work. I think part of the reason behind this is that there are many angles at which one can shoot it from, yet very few of those angles are actually pleasing to the eye. Flickrite bossa67 appears to have found one of those angles, and with the lighting, (what I’m guessing is) his use of sepia tones, and the great timing of the birds in flight, we have a winner. The trees directly behind the fountain may be a bit distracting, but overall I think this shot does Dupont justice.
