    Neat series! I went to DC couple years ago. What a beautiful city!
    I really like the fifth (much better than taking pictures of paintings ;)) & the second shot, greatly composed! Love the DOF in #1. Well done :thumbup:!

    Thanks guys (and girl ;) ) I really need to go to DC more often...
    It's less than an hour away, and with the Smithsonian, you could spend a week down there without spending a dime. It's a great place :)

    4, 5, and 6 are really simple, clean compositions. Nicely done. :thumbup:

    How come this morning I only find posts in reply to photos on here that reflect my very own thoughts!
    Here I am, going to say "4, 5 and 6" are the ones I like best of the series, and what has JonK said just now (well, some four and a half hours ago, actually, but right before me)?

    4, 5 and 6.

    So there!
    It is true. They are the best.
    And 5 is so very "clarinetJWD", it is bestest :D.


    But hey, just coming back to my post again to say that I also like the one of the posing... what is it? A mantis?
    Well, that green creature in the first...!

    They're all nicely composed, but #5 is the standout for me.

    Gotta laugh at the praying mantis shot - my favorite bug! :heart: Bless their funny little heads. :)
