I was with a group for a Washington, DC Monuments at Night tour. I was trying for a clean shot at the World War II Monument with the Lincoln in the background when a group of high school kids came by. I took a few test shots while waiting patiently for them to leave. However, once the girl in the red dress entered the sea of black, I knew I had something. The group dispersed soon after. I wish I could find them and give them copies of this photo.
Photo purposely taken on tungsten white balance because I liked the violet effect on the night sky, fountain, and marble monument.
