Not sure what this building is. I am sure its apart of the original Smithsonian Institute stuff because of the date of the building but I honestly have no idea what it is. I know next to is is the National Holocaust Museum. I shot it from 14th Street as I was walking back to my car with my barely functioning hands as they were frozen. I just liked the light that was being cast on it as the sun really started to finally rise. The time on the clock is accurate of the time I took the picture.
Nothing fancy going on here editing wise. I did try this as a low key image but it crushed the blues in the sky to some weird color and it wasn’t going to be a natural blue no matter what. I went for the weird crop size because my tripod wasn’t level and I was shooting in a hurry because my fingers were so cold that I could barely even get the camera to a semi-level position. So I had Camera Raw handle the level for me. The issue is it just leaves white space but I think the crop works.
