A Shot A Day – 2016 (03/31/2016)

by | Mar 31, 2016 | A Shot A Day 2016 |

“Target Focus”

Union Station in Washington, DC designed by Architect Daniel H. Burnham, assisted by Pierce Anderson, was inspired by a number of architectural styles. Classical elements included the Arch of Constantine (exterior, main façade) and the great vaulted spaces of the Baths of Diocletian (interior); prominent siting at the intersection of two of Pierre L’Enfant’s avenues, with an orientation that faced the United States Capitol just five blocks away; a massive scale, including a façade stretching more than 600 ft (180 m) and a waiting room ceiling 96 ft (29 m) above the floor. This exterior colonnade has great interplays of light and is on my target list of images to go back and work on with a specific goal in mind.

A Shot A Day – 2016(B) (091A of 365)-(31-03)

Sony Alpha A7RII, Sony FE 24-70 ZA OSS

ISO 400 – 1/100 @ f/6.3 – 29mm

In this image alignment is the most important consideration, with exposure bringing up a close second. The United States Postal Museum sits centered at the far end of the Colonnade and timing the ambient light would allow a single exposure image where its facade would be visible in the remote archway.

Need to go back a rework this shot.
