"Image of the Jefferson Memorial and Tidal Basin in Washington D.C. during each of the seasons. While the concept isn't new I always enjoy see the change a single location can go through during a year. Each of the four images used in the final image is an HDR image blended together using Nik HDR efex Pro 2. When taking the photo I would set up visual markers so the resulting images could be easily blended without major Photoshop work.
I was sure to use the same lens each time at the same focal length. I used a tree next to where I was standing to help place my tripod in the same location each time. I also set up other visual markers like lining the bench leg up with the building and the gaps between the tree trunks so the perspective was the same. I also tried to get the images around the same time of day so the lighting was similar. (with necessary adjustments for season time differences) Once I had each image it was just a matter of masking out the different picture for each season. I plan on doing more like this in the future and blend them in ways other than the vertical columns." -Kevin Miller
