Washington Monument at Sunset

John and I have returned from our trip to Washington DC, which seemed a lot less crowded than last year. The Washington Monument was closed for safety after the unusual earthquake around DC on August 23rd, so at least it made sense that there wasn’t anyone there. Though I did notice while working on this one that I happened to catch John as he was taking pictures himself.

The sunset is mostly real…I did do a little tweaking of the colors in a new layer, then did a Linear Dodge blend. It was quite dramatic, so that top layer is set to 70% opacity.
