The Washington Monument is one of the tallest stone structures in the US. Built in memory of the first president of the United States, this obelisk, stands tall, giving an extraordinary view both from near and far from the Lincoln Memorial.
Handled HDR (3 images at -2,0,+2 EV) shot with D90 @24mm, f.9.0, ISO 200. Processed in Aurora HDR Pro for HDR Processing, Photoshop for cloud streaks and Lightroom for final touch up. Photoshop's radial blur tool is one of the simplest yet powerful filter I have been using for a while and when properly used with layers it gives amazing results.
