US Capitol

U. S. Capitol, Washington, DC

Wednesday was beautiful and somewhere in the 70’s. I went downtown to meet a friend. After my meeting I walked from Union Station to the U. S. Botanic Gardens and took pictures of the U. S. Capitol with my Sony a6000 and my Google Pixel 2 XL. Well the Pixel phone picture outdid my a6000. So to outdo my phone I took 3 exposures (under exposed, exposed properly, and over exposed) and combined them using HDR. All of the pictures are below. The next time I am down there I want to take the picture from the same angle with both cameras.

Sony a6000 HDR combination of the 3 photos below, I increased the saturation resulting in the sky being a little bluer which reminds me of postcards that I have seen of the Capitol
