I went to D.C. for the first time last week and wanted to share a couple of pictures I thought turned out ok. I would appreciate any C&C. Enjoy

I find that the obelisk(?) in the first picture a bit soft, and I really like the warm light on the building in the second(may I know what building is it?). :)

Washington Monument and US Capitol, respectively.

I really like the 2nd pic. Interesting color on the Capital in the afternoon setting sun (or is that dawn?).

Thanks for the comments.

I didn't have a tripod with me so I had to shoot at ISO 1600 for the first pic. I agree that the image is far from sharp, but I did the best I could under the circumstances.

The second pic was taken at sunset.
