You certainly got 6+! :) Congrats on a beautiful shot. As someone who shoots around DC all the time, I greatly appreciate different angles. Congrats on your first top 10!

This is one of my top picks, I love the perspective and the sunset (sunrise?) colours.

I like the lighting but would like to see a little deeper DOF. The focus point is on an area that is not very interesting.

Beautiful lines and superb reflection! The only thing I could recommend would be to adjust the photo so that the horizon lines up more vertically (which I know you can't do in this competition, I don't think). Great job.

Nice image. Good strong lines and color. One suggestion, crop the image in on the left side starting where the greenish yellow light is on the wall.
cheers,

I was there just yesterday, thinking about this shot. :) I love the colors here but the tilt of the monumnet bugs me a bit.

this is pretty cool, i really like the idea although the frame doesn't look quite level (tilted to the left?) and there seems to be a halo around the washington monument.

Beautiful composition and exposure. Great positioning of the monument. Excellent colors and detail through out. Should be a top 10 image.
