There's nothing like a complete re-edit of an old favorite. This 3 shot HDR of the classic Washington DC lineup brings out the stunning colors of Autumn. Re-processed using Photomatix 4.2 with noise removal done on the sky in Photoshop have made this a much sharper, cleaner edit than my first attempt two years ago.
The first rays of sunrise spill into the Tidal Basin and onto the bright pink and white petals of the cherry blossom trees as the Washington Monument stands watch over DC. A perfectly clear Sunday sky provides the perfect setting for the tens of thousands of visitors taking in the scene across the city this weekend.
