About the Image(s)

This image was made in 2021 when I took some visiting relatives to see the Capitol building in Washington DC. Since the front of the Capitol had been photographed so frequently (by me and others), I decided to shoot the back side.

The intent of my editing was to add depth while emphasizing the dome and the flag. I converted to B&W using Silver Efex and then did much of the processing in Photoshop. I used the curves adjustment layers on selected portions of the image to add depth. Then I went into Camera Raw to do further modifications of the lighting.

Data: Canon R5; 24-105mm lens @ 47mm; 1/800 sec; f/9; ISO 100.

Your shot from the other side is spot on. I feel the whites are a little hot, see histogram, suggest reducing exposure on building by .25 of a stop.
