Excellent photo.

The focus and exposure are perfect and the perspective is very interesting.

And I must say I'm amazed by how little grain this photo has, considering that the exif data says you used ISO 1250...

Thank you.

The lack of grain I can attribute to the lens I rented for the trip... the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM. Amazing, amazing lens.

Great lighting! And well done with the hand held. I would have guessed you had a tripod.

And thank you for your comment!

Well done. The only thing that you could improve upon is the exposure in the background. The script in the marble behind Lincoln would make a stronger impact if they were visible. Try making the bg into a layer using quick mask (Q) and using a black brush (B) to select the area you'd like for the mask. Once it's on it's own layer mess with the exposure settings or shadow highlight settings under Edit>Image>.... Other than that, very nicely done.

Interesting. I guess because I was never sure if I really wanted the text to be part of the image, I just left it as is. I've also been trying to edit less, but perhaps this needs it.

I greatly appreciate your extensive comment and I'll play around with it when I've got the chance. Thank you thank you thank you.
