Washington Monument with plane

Wow! I had not anticipated that you could take a photo of that monument such that the top looked squared off rather than pointy! Neat!

Timing was everything in getting this. Great photo.

Great capture!

A nice example of the rule of thirds, more or less.

Lovely stuff. I also really like the blue of the sky—not that easy to get it to look like that, I find.

Great colours, great composition. There’s a nice energy from the plane being just short of arriving at the point where lines extending from the sides of the monument would cross in the sky (maybe)

Do you still use analog film? Your blues are intense.

Philosopher Roger Scruton, who argues on theoretical grounds that photography cannot be art, can go jump in the lake.

Thanks people.

@john No (or at least not here). But I shoot RAW and then use various Lightroom settings that mimic slide film.
