Lincoln in His Memorial at Night


This photograph is from my first evening ever photographing in Washington DC. I took this photograph after photographing the memorial from outside. There were many people in the memorial, even though I was there after 11 PM. They were courteous, so taking the time to set up and take this photograph was not a problem. I took eight images and averaged them together to reduce the amount of thermal noise generated in the CMOS sensor of the camera.
