Old-Fashioned Friday - Fort McHenry

Today's installment of "Old-Fashioned Friday" brings you a shot from the center of Fort McHenry, located in Baltimore, Maryland. I decided on this shot because while "old style" shots from this vantage point have probably been done before, I really like this angle and the replica of a US flag from the era is a great touch too! (notice how few stars there are!)

Hopefully I will get a chance to visit Baltimore again when the weather is much warmer and get some more shots (especially of Fells Point, looking VERY forward to heading back there again!). I also think that I am going to try to get some shots of Camden Yards, although I am not certain what their policy is on cameras so I might have to try to arrange to take one of the guided ballpark tours, but hopefully I am able to get lucky and have it work out. Enjoy today's photo!

  1. Hi- Another great one!!!
    So, why are the buildings 'leaning' - your lens?
    What did you use?

  2. It's mostly the angle that I took the shot at, when I applied lens correction through DxO in order to get the buildings parallel it screwed up the perspective of the flagpole, which is the one thing that I didn't want.

    I added some noise and texture via CS5 and several different layers of "olding" via Silver Efex Pro 2 after creating the HDR image in Photomatix.
