The Navy-Merchant Marine Memorial - Plate II by 

The Navy-Merchant Marine Memorial, located in Lady Bird Johnson Park on Columbia Island in Washington, D.C., is a monument honoring sailors of the United States Navy and the United States Merchant Marine who died at sea during World War I. It was designed in 1922 by Harvey Wiley Corbett and sculpted by Ernesto Begni del Piatta. It was dedicated on October 18, 1934.
The memorial reads:
“To the strong souls and ready valor of those men of the United States who in the Navy, the Merchant Marine and other paths of Activity upon the waters of the world have given life or still offer it in the performance of heroic deeds this monument is dedicated by a grateful people.” “wiki”

    Love the processing of this image

  • I was sitting around playing with the retouch menu on the D7000 and this was one of a few variations that I liked. Thank you so much for the lovely comment.

    Really cool… Superb effect!

  • I thought that this would be kinda neat. I was fiddling around with the menu on the d7000 and showing my wife what it could offer when we came upon this. She liked it immediately so we decided to post it.

    This is very cool the way you edited it!

  • I love my D7000! My wife thinks that it’s cool that she does’nt have to edit in Photoshop it’s right there in the camera!

    This is right from the camera??? Wow, that is neat!

  • I normally use the “set picture control” menu as it offers most of what I what in the image from vibrant colors to “monochrome effects”. The D7000 and the D90 offer a range of options to help straighten an image or experiment. Sometimes, if I’m at the zoo and I know that I might miss something I might make a recording of it and cut a frame out of the movie and print it. One of the pandas was taken this way.
