Walking in George’s Footsteps

This was taken during a previous January – one that was much colder than it is now in Miami.  We were in Annapolis, MD touring the State House. This is the oldest state capitol in continuous legislative use, dating back to 1772. In it is the room where George Washington resigned his military commission in 1783 after the Revolutionary War, to become a private citizen (only for a little while though — the country still had great need of him).

I don’t know how many layers she’s wearing, but she sure is bundled up!

The original was cute but needed a bit of oomph. Head over to Project Edit 365 to see the original and how I edited it! Thanks!

George’s Head – ProjectEdit365 – 29 June

I love using black and white with rock. It really helps accent the textures. This one was a quick edit (mainly because we’re traveling and I’m tired). I increased the contrast, clarity, and exposure. Then I cropped it to focus more on George and sharpened the whole picture. The original:
