Yeah, I'm in the Northern Virginia portion of the DC Metro Area.  National Harbor's on the other side of the Capitol Beltway from me, but since it's right off and clearly visible from the Wilson Bridge (I-495 / I-95 crossing the Potomac River), I see it on a fairly regular basis.

Rushed to take advantage of a quickly setting sun to get this silhouette.

Battle of Giants ... mk II

Another attempt at the forced perspective for  #WPP2015-Wk11-ThinkBig .  What a big difference a change in lens makes!  This shot didn't require the double exposure hack as done before.  I also removed the black background as it made the picture too flat and the Skylander looked photoshopped on.  Also added some vignetting to help the illusion that the pieces were on the same plane.

Lens info: went from a Lumix 14-140mm @ 14mm f22  to a Olympus 15mm f8 body cap lens.

#WPP2015-Wk10-GoldenHour

As I did a picture of Bougainvillea for Textures last week, I was not planning on the same thing for this week, but when do things ever go according to plan?  On my way to work, I saw this bright cluster lying on the ground with the morning sun shining just right and couldn't pass it up.  The framing could have been better, but I was rushing and focused too much on keeping my own shadow away.

Another on-the-way-to-work image that's ending up in my #WPP2015.  Not exactly a mirror image of each other, though.

Tatooine?

Making up for being late by having two suns :)  If you look closely, you might see a sun spot.

Battle of Giants

This is my first attempt at forced perspective.  Twelve-inch Titanfall Ogre vs three-inch (now giganticized) Skylander.  Anyone have tips on taking such shots?  I couldn't get the depth of field wide enough to get both in focus, so ended up doing a double exposure.

edit: posted too soon, as I made an improved version here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/113600599570516930513/posts/fTUi9NF7vXc

Works well - I have never tried it but would focus stacking do it - Pat Davis ( on G+ somewhere ) has a fine post on his blog about the process

Stark difference between same photo viewed on different devices. Anyone know of possible reasons? Messed with display properties to no avail.

 Bougainvillea

edit: hmm, the picture was definitely not a hot pink when I uploaded.  Had to dial the saturation way down in the g+ photo editor.

Thank you, all.

I default auto enhance to off, and double checked that it wasn't on for this image.  What's weird was that it appears super saturated everywhere besides my surface and camera.    Here's a photo of the difference:  https://plus.google.com/113600599570516930513/posts/KfGEgmt6EKt

A pair of elusive Ribbon Fish!

This one took much more time than I had anticipated; at pretty much every step, there were unexpected difficulties:  setting up a contraption to suspend the fish, dealing with it spinning around, trying to find a good balance between reflection and fish, and trying not to get myself or the hanging contraption in the shot.
