I stumbled upon this photograph over the weekend while doing screen grabs for my new book on wedding photography. The image was mixed in with several things from a trip we did about three years ago to the Washington, DC area. When it popped up on the screen I was really taken by the vibrant and rich colors of the scene. It's a simple still life taken outside the National Cathedral on a fairly overcast day which is the reason I believe that the colors are so rich and vibrant. I think the contrasting colors also work beautifully in this particular image. Camera specs Canon 30D. fitted with 17to55mm F2.8 lens, F5.o @ 1/200 second, ISO ISO 800.
Enjoy! -- David
