Shot looking towards the Capitol. While shooting this, the President's helicopter Marine One landed on the South Lawn of the White House. Very, very cool thing indeed.

Impressive photo. I'm curious how you stopped the car on the right though. Very nice.

Like the lines of light leading the eye to the Capital building. Nice color.

Love the star effect! I overall like your exposure time (exposed to the focus of your shot). I find the extreme aspect ratio to be the only distractor here and a minor one at that.

Hurrah hurrah - some context at last. I feel like giving you extra points just for that, after the last few images. I wonder if you haven't relegated your landmark too much for most tastes - and if the forground isn't too cluttered and busy. I think that would be my personal criticism of it too - whilst you've captured the sense of the way it dominates the streets, I wonder if you haven't just taken it too far. Good work.

Nice attempt at a different angle for the capitol but it's a bit too busy. Also it looks like the angle is a bit tilted
