National Cathedral shadows (4th place, Concrete Jungle Challege)

National Cathedral shadows (4th place, Concrete Jungle Challege)

Washington, D.C.

Taken at the National Cathedral. I would liked to have used a tripod, but some service was just finishing up and it seemed a bit too intrusive, so I had to do with hand held, making it literally the softer side of the jungle, in concrete. I haven't enhanced the color, BTW; the light streaming in from the stained glass was truly spectacular.
