[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have done a horrible job of getting photos for this week's events in Washington DC. Seems I get so caught up in the moment, I miss the 'money shots.' Do like this one though....

Hi Kelly,

Well, I would dare say that unless you have press credentials, you wouldn't get too many of the "money shots." LOL! That being said, I think you captured a winner here. The extra wide angle really conveys the sense of just how many people were in attendance, and placing the capitol at the center minimized its distortion.

Even the blown sky in the upper right adds to the photo, especially in the overall context. Without getting too political, your photo conveys a sense of optimism, hope and excitement.

Nicely done!
