I took this picture with a Nikon D5300 in Washington DC.
Does anyone have any thoughts?
P.S. I’m not quite sure why there appears to be a shadow behind the upper right of the monument. Maybe someone else has some input on that?

Beautiful picture, especially the coloring. I’m not sure what shadowing you are referring to, but if it is the very slightly shaded area along the whole right side, then I too am clueless. Regardless, what I do know is that the monument is just enough off vertical be to noticeable. Fix that, and I think you’ve got a winner.January 7, 2018 at 6:25 pm #28124
Good job. A really good pic’!January 7, 2018 at 10:06 pm #28125
@joseph, the color is very vibrant! The shadow is most likely something that has to do with the editing, or if you used a filter, perhaps it was that. Another thing is, the monument needs a to be straightened a bit in editing, too. Great job!!!

Hey everyone, Thanks for your comments!
@vince and @rmadaris, that’s a great idea to straighten it. Here it is straightened.
@rmadaris, I know it wasn’t caused by editing, because the the shadow is in the original. There was a certain setting I was using when I shot it that I can’t remember (it may have been bracketing), but that may be what caused it.January 12, 2018 at 4:50 pm #28212
If you shot it with the built-in HDR function, that could be what is causing the shadow. It could also be jpg compression artefacts – I am seeing quite a bit of banding throughout the sky. Did you shoot it in raw or jpg?January 12, 2018 at 5:57 pm #28226
@dfrazer, now that you mentioned it, I believe that I did use the built-in HDR. It was shot in JPG.January 17, 2018 at 3:37 pm #28362
Built-in image enhancements (like the internal HDR function) would be my guess!January 18, 2018 at 9:53 am #28385
Ok, I guess I learned my lesson the hard way with that. 😀 Does anyone have any ideas on a way to edit it out, or at least make it less obvious?January 19, 2018 at 5:56 pm #28501
“Local adjustment” tools in whatever editing program you might have.
