During a recent trip to Washington DC I managed to snap a few images testing out the Canon 7D + Tamron 18-270mm ultra telephoto lens. The image above was taken at quite a long ways back allowing me to zoom in from a long distance away thanks to this lenses range and the 1.6x crop sensor on the camera. This particular image and most of the ones below were shot then edited using a method called "HDR" high dynamic range where you set the camera to take 3 pictures at -2, 0, +2 exposure and merge the highlights and lowlights together in one image giving it a unique style.
It was an eye opening experience visiting America's monuments and museums during my short and HOT stay here in DC. Wish I had more time to take pictures and play golf with some of our DC customers.
