Powerful shot. We've certainly had skies like that recently.

Hands down, he is one of my favorites. General, statesman, fantastic fighter, president- the most loyal of friends and the most ferocious of enemies.

You captured the essence of the man himself, with this one.

Mojo, no...I did not use HDR. I used filter and SPEEDLITE PRO KIT that helps so much to take the real color of the scene, include the light. And really the sky was strange.
I have taken 60 photos of those scenes...

The monument is awesome for sure it had a lot of history attach to it. The clouds is dark looks like it's going to rain.

You have taught me a new style, shooting up wards.

In Auckland, you often see a sea gull standing on the head of a statue.

Kristin said...

Fantastic angle and monochrome.

Tarun Mitra said...
