Thank you Daniele - I didn't think there was enough light in the building as I was without a tripod, but it worked anyhow! I want to go back now that I have a camera that does much better at the higher ISO's!

Stunning is right! such an unusual approach to a standard type of shot- Even the stairs and banisters in the lower right seem to be the human-level beginning point up into a heavenly world. This is great photography!!!

Debbie, you can say that again and this image is proof of the right place, right light and right time, however, I will add one thing the right eyes. Awesome capture.:)

Thank you, Sue and Irene. It's one of my favorites. It has to do with the that spiral shape which has a particular name in photographic terms but for the life of me I don't remember what the name is.

Debbie- I have nothing to say but, how in the heck did the Secret Service not take your camera :) You're probably on a "watch list" somewhere:) LOL

Absolutely beautiful, no suggestions for improvement, just get the thing matted & hung :)

Thank you Jayme. I'm glad you're "back". I know about remodeling and how it can consume your time. You know, I didn't notice any SS men around. The capitol building is open to the public but I suspect they are "lurking" around in the background somewhere just waiting for someone to take a picture of something they aren't supposed to!

It seems I have a lot of people to thank: Claudio, Eugenio, Shante, Sam, Sue, Tarun, Joan, Elida, Aimee, Renata and Dominick Thanks to all of you for taking time to comment. I was SO GLAD that there were no people on the ledge up above. Sometimes we are in the right place at the right time. And Jayme - I was surprised no one tried to stop me as well. That's why I've never tried to go up to the Academy and take pics of the Air Force Cadet Chapel. One of these days though, I'm going to take the chance.

Thank you, Linda. This makes me want to go back there and see if there are even more points of view there. I've been too busy to go anywhere lately but school and work will be over in another two weeks. Yes!

Thank you Shelly, Lynn, Manuel and Candice. It's been a while since i've been directed to this spot. Do any of you ever think that you "miss" part of your mail?? Yes, this has to be one of my favorites. Glad you like it, too.
