Purple Hour Capitol - Exclusive HDR Stock by somadjinn Purple Hour Capitol - Exclusive HDR Stock by somadjinn
Long exposure night photo of the Washington DC Capitol. Also an HDR composite from multiple exposures.

Because of the different light sources and their varying color casts, I decided to adjust the white balance for the iconic white dome of the Capitol while keeping the green & brown colors of the foliage intact. Together with the HDR processing, the sky then shifted to glowing shades of purple & violet even though in person I remember it being a very dark shade of blue since it was very early in the morning. Still I think it adds a rather nice surreal element to the whole scene, a kind of “purple hour” that might otherwise precede the blue hour of dawn :-)

You can download the same image without watermark directly on my website for free stock photos: freestock.ca/americas_g98-wash…

This picture is also available for download at 4000 x 2667 px for a small premium of 40 points. Most everything else including my stock rules remain the same, except this premium download gives you access to a much larger version of the picture without watermark.
