    The image is a little soft when large. But, I liked it. :)

    Uhm, ok. I don't know for a fact, so I am going out on a limb here... the American Red Cross Building.

    The gold statue looks like Nike (the Greek Goddess, not the shoe) although that's just a guess.

    edit: According to this page the statue is called Winged Victory, which is also the name of a very famous statue of Nike (Victory) that's at the Louvre, so maybe I was right.

    #4 worked best for me. I liked the DOF of, coloring and the general composition of the shot. Nice job!

    Bull,

    Thanks for the info. How did you find it so fast?

    I have always wanted to see DC when the cherry blossoms are in bloom. Lucky you! I too really like the fourth shot.

    Well I thought it looked like Nike (victory) so I started googling things, and when I put in "washington dc statues gold winged victory" I came up with that site. The things you'll do as a student avoiding real work.

    Again, thanks. :)

    Thank you too, Antarctican. Yeah, the Tidal Basin is incredibly beautiful this time of year with all the trees in bloom. If I were brave, I'd take one of those boats out to the center and create like a panoramic image of the whole thing. But, I don't want to take my cam out there.
