From the State of NoVa’s favorite photographer, Angela B. Pan, comes this amazing shot of the Alexandria waterfront near the Torpedo Factory at sunrise Friday morning. It is not a painting, though it sure looks like one. Let’s hope the waterfront looks like this after Ms. H. Irene of Atlantic, Ocean, pays her visit.
Note: Pan uses a process called HDR, short for high dynamic range, which involves merging several images into one to improve contrast and, I’d say, overall coolness. Here’s a good tutorial on it. And here’s a link to Pan’s own site, from which longtime readers of this blog will note I have, er, borrowed before. (With permission.)
