Washington DC experienced its first snow of the winter last Wednesday, forcing schools to open later and/or close early, causing disruption on the roads and sending business women in theri suits and high heels (me dus) skidding along the side-walk. :)
This is not desaturated it really was that grey, standing on the Rayburn House office building steps waiting for a taxi the last touch of colour caught my eye.
The Rayburn House Office Building (RHOB) is a congressional office building for the U.S. House of Representatives in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, D.C., between South Capitol Street and First Street.
Rayburn is named after former Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn.

Beautifull is this shot.
The last colour, and the everlasting love of mother and child...
A special mood , and a lovely feel...
Wish you the best, dear friend.

Well composed in wonderful light. Your perspective is well chosen and there is good depth, yhe best is the natural colours that you have achieved.

A very beautiful image Elaine - really very special to capture such a familiar subject in such a fantastic way - the last colours indeed - and a wonderful counterpoint ot this historical symbol of expressed male power to have this statue given prominence - (although I'm sure there were more than a few female voices behind those expressions of 'exclusive' male power!
There are such simple hidden sensory depths here - wonderful!!

Very nicely balanced composition, with the statue off-setting the central dome. Well captured.
Is it my imagination, or is the image slightly tilted?
