I prefer that shot to the current shot. Who else has an opinion on this? RedFowl —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 22:10, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
It's blurry as noted. There are many nighttime shots which are readily available that are useable. This is not one of them. Tedickey (talk) 22:15, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

I think the nightime shot of the Capitol is pretty good. When I looked the the shot with the caption "At night," it seemed pretty appealing to me with the dusk in the background. Samb338 (talk) 04:04, 17 October 2013 (UTC)
Hi there. Just wondering if anyone with a more thorough knowledge of the history of this page than I thinks that the redirect "The Capitol", which currently leads to this article, ought to do so, or if a redirect to the disambiguation page Capitol makes more sense.
As I see this talk page isn't very active, I'll be making the change myself in the next few days if anyone doesn't object. Thanks! Evanh2008 (talk) (contribs) 09:12, 26 April 2012 (UTC)
I removed the prohibited items list from the Security section because the reference pointed to a PDF that doesn't exist anymore and the list doesn't match what is currently listed on the US Capitol website. Furthermore lists like this are dubious because there are always exceptions, the passage read:
The Capitol bans weapons, battery operated devices (though cameras and cellular phones are allowed), recording devices, large bags, cans, bottles, creams, perfumes, strollers, food, beverages and knives in the Capitol Visitor Center.
Capitol Police carry weapons, most watches are battery operated, every member of the press has a recording device, members and staff eat, drink, and carry large bags with cosmetics in the building. Limiting the list to the Visitor Center is also a POV aimed at tourists not encyclopediodic readers.--Yanofsky (talk) 03:47, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
User:Jkadavoor recently did an overhaul of the pictures in this article. For the main picture, I actually think I liked the old one better. Like, significantly better. It's brighter, more detailed. Here is the diff: 
I dunno, it's sorta lame to split hairs over this. If I don't hear anything in a couple of days, I might be WP:BOLD and revert. --220.127.116.11 (talk) 16:35, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
Feel free to revert; if you think so. IMHO, the picture I replaced is very overexposed; no details on white parts. The picture I added is a recent FP in Commons. JKadavoorJee 16:51, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
