Picture Perfect

This is probably the most photographed view of Washington DC, but Jeff Costlow has executed it beautifully. Just head over the your local book store, grab a calendar or photo book, and you’re likely to find it. This shot has it all: great composition, beautiful color, and the Potomac was like glass that day. One might say that the tree branch in the lower right should be cloned out, but it’s really a spectacular shot that just says “DC”.

I read today that Canon might be releasing some new DSLR’s in the next couple of months and yes, I’m dying in anticipation. My dream would be an upgraded 30D that is 12.8 megapixels, has a new image processor, and throw in a built-in sensor cleaner like the Digital Rebel XTi has just for fun. Oh, and charge less than $2K for it please!
