The two guys who happened to hold still long enough to register on this image really make it work for me. The shot could use more detail in the sky to balance it a bit better but it's not bad for a night shot uncropped (for me, who rarely shoots at night!).

Ya went back, eh? :) Just proves my general thought that DC looks much better by night.

Such a somber atmosphere but the two figures really bring out the intimacy of the moment.

I like the water in the fountains, but it would be nice to see something in the upper left dark area

Very relaxing and well composed image. I see from lack of motion blur that the silhouetted duo remained still during the exposure. Good luck. -8-

the people, the fountains, the memorial behind are great elements - i just wish the image were brighter as if taken a bit earlier so the city behind was still slightly visible to bring out the details in the Lincoln Memorial behind.
