    Thomas Jefferson Memorial in the Evening

    The Thomas Jefferson Memorial in Washington, DC. Was not sure what to do with the light to the left. I dulled it down a little but was uncomfortable deleting it as all the shadows that is produce around it. Any ideas? C&C welcome.

    Excellent shot, Steve. I like it as is. I think toning it down a little more is about all you can do, as cloning it out will get you into a Pandora's box both with the local shadowing, and the reflections in the water. A great subject for a PP Challenge

    Really nice image. I don't think there is much you can do about the light. It certainly draws attention to itself, but I think you've done as good as can be.

    Next time you go there, take a friend. Have him climb the lightpole and cover it until your finish shooting.

    Not knowing how bright the light was, I can't tell how much it was toned down. I don't think it detracts from the image the way it is but I get the feeling that the reflection should have been toned down below the brightness of the Memorial reflection.

    Very nice! The light is going to be tough to address. Keep up the good work.
