Starting from the background, the Capitol building, the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial, all lit through the night, as this photo was taken at the crack of dawn.

I like it... Not only it's sort of a classical view with the well known monuments, it's well spotted, well taken, with good colors and great result.
The only thing is...I think you have a bit too much green in the front so I'd probably crop about one centimetre from the bottom...

You know what...the Washington Monument was damaged by a earthquake couple years ago. It's being repaired since then. So visitors can not go inside taking elevator to the top.
This picture is crystal clear, an amazing blue hour picture.

Je crois me souvenir de certaines photos du Lincoln memorial que tu avais postées il y a quelques années. Je suppose que cette photo fait partie de la même cession de prise de vue.
Ce qui plait au premier regard, c'est la douceur des teintes et la qualité de l'exposition pour arriver à ce résultat: un bonne équilibre sur les pierres claires des monuments sur un ciel bleu encre qui tire un peu sur le rouge et permet de faire un lien sur la couleur des certaines des pierres des constructions.

Impressive subject very well presented! The stunning architecture look so great with the clear intensive blue sky as a background. Super image! Well done.

Ces trois célèbres bâtiments émergent fièrement de cette "nuit américaine". Belle qualité d'image.

Beautiful postcard shot, Andre - and I like it especially since I'm looking at the spot where my wife and I got engaged, the back side of the Lincoln Memorial! In fact, you can see the exact spot - right between two of the columns there. Beautiful at night, though sadly right now much of the area is being renovated and restored, with the reflecting pool empty and the Washington Monument in scaffolding.
Thanks for this one!

Very nice morning view of all three structures. At first I though it was taken during the evening blue hour, but I was wrong. The illumination against the lovely blue color is really nice. I don't recall seeing both monuments and the capitol lined up like this in other photos, and it has a strong visual impact.

A classic shot that is meticulously composed - each monument is given a good amount of separation from the other, so that the viewer can appreciate them individually, as well as a collective whole. Your dramatic blue hour skies never cease to impress either.
