The more familiar side of the Capitol faces the Mall and the Washington Monument. This is the 'business' side with its three sets of steps and a huge paved and grass areas facing the US Supreme Court and other important locations.

It is vast. I was more than 200meters from the building and my wide angle lens is at 10mm!!

Very impressive.

The family in front of me were taking a family picture. I waited 20mins for them to finish but gave up - lots of serious shouting but little by way of results. It became as much a picture of them as of the building! Here mum is screeching at son to get back and join his sister.

You've really conveyed the idea of scale in this. Don't think I've ever seen the Capital from this side. Impressive image.

Wow!... That's one big building!
Great travel shot, and very interesting for those of us who haven"t been to America. - I'm surprised how few tourists there are in the frame, bearing in mind what a famous building it is.
Lovely composition.

Roger.

Kids eh, who'd 'ave 'em? Smile

Impressive shot. The people in the foreground give less of a sense of scale, but fortunately, you have some on the steps, which does in deed show it to be a vast building.

I shouldn't worry about the family, you were bound to have somebody in the shot.
