The Early Bird Gets…

…a beautiful “postcard” shot of the Capitol! Andertho has done it again here with this early morning shot of the hornet’s nest. I’m guessing that since this photo was taken on January 1st, he was either walking home from a raging party, or was able to get up early due to an uneventful New Year’s Eve.

Overall I think this is a great photo, my only critiques being that it seems slightly off center and slightly overexposed (parts of the dome are pure white). Most digital cameras have a feature that will show you the overexposed areas of your shot by making them blink on your LCD after you’ve taken the shot – a great feature that you won’t get with film!

On a side note, I’ve been toying with the idea of buying a Canon 5D, which is arguable one of the top three best digital SLR’s made by Canon. Pricey, yes, but full of professional features (12.8 megapixels, full frame sensor, and a more rugged build than most other cameras). If money grew on trees I would already be the owner of the Canon 1Ds Mark II, but alas, it doesn’t.
