photoblog image picture of a video - White House

picture of a video - White House

I am surprised I don't have any White House shots on my blog yet, I hope to put a few up someday. This is one of my favorite compositions, but usually I try to include the actual subject to the left of the frame if conditions permit. This day there was a huge crowd at this spot, so I was forced to take this shot without including the actual subject, either way I like the outcome of this shot..let me hear you.

Very good, Dotun.
Beats just about any other way of shooting the White House in my book.

The subject IS in the picture, Dotun, in a very creative way (as has already been said). It's really very nice. I even like the pinky up. smile

The challenge for most of of when confronted with a landmark that's been done to death is to come up with something fresh - some way of presenting it in an unusual way.

You stepped up to the challenge and came up with an unusual, if not unique, way of handling it.

Improvement? Possibly select the video camera screen only and apply some levels adjustment to that alone to lighten it up and make it more obvious that it is the subject.

Other than that, this is a fine rendition.

Everyone has already alluded to creativity and i agree. Some observations: lucky she held her hand that way. Although the WH is not that clear on the screen, it is so well known that nobody disputes the fact!

Idea - take a good clear well defined shot and create a collage of a red quadrant (what the commies would do), a dark brown (what the oil princes would do), a green quadrant (what Greenpeace would do) if these groups took over the white house. Last quadrant? USA is bound to have a female president somewhere in the next 20 years - so what colour scheme would she want the 'white' house then? Your creativity can show us that one!

Another one with the US flag juxtaposed in a transparant layer?

Add the WH into a Rushmore pic, or the other way round.

Enjoy smile
Clever take on an often photographed place.
