St. Matthews Dome

Today's photo is the dome of St. Matthews Cathedral, located in Washington, DC. As many of you know, St. Matthews is what I personally consider to be the most incredible church interior that I have ever photographed, as no photo can truly do the interior justice.

I took this shot with my camera pointing straight up toward the dome, with my fisheye lens, inches away from the spot where John F. Kennedy's casket was placed (and commemorated with a marking on the floor) shortly after he was assassinated. I took a sort of similar shot about a year ago, with the wide angle lens, but that was more of trying to capture everything, rather than focusing on the dome itself. I am quite happy with how this shot came out, and I hope you enjoy it!
