Because I have no idea what I’m looking at…and I like it!
Is this some sort of reflection? An angle of the Capitol that I’ve never seen before? Some sort of Photoshop voodoo? My brain would like to know, but my eyes are telling my brain to just shut up and enjoy the view. Quite a complicated situation going on around my upper extremities.
Flickrite noamgalai has impressed me with this one by doing what turns an overdone scene into a great photograph. One of the keys to taking a great photo (but not always necessary) is to show your subject doing something out of the ordinary. It’s one thing to take a photo of a bird for instance, but a photo of a bird eating a cigarette – priceless.
Aside from thoroughly confusing me (which is a good thing in this case), the composition and post processing are great on this shot and can be an inspiration to all photographers in our nation’s capital.
