    Took the Metro into DC the other day. Some CC would be great. I took most of these with the new Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM Ultra Wide I just picked up and a few with my good old Canon EF 100mm f/2.4 Macro.

    #5 is absolutely stunning. Composition is perfect. Lines are brilliant. Colors and textures are amazing. I love it.

    Although I can't really critique, I will say that I like #3 and #4. Just a suggestion, number your photos and possibly try to fix the tilt on the last one..unless I'm seeing things. Good stuff though. Wish I had my camera when I went there.

    Number 8 is really cool. These squirrels seem to love to pose for people. My wife has a couple similar to this. Great shot.

    Thanks, I do need to fix 10 (didn't notice it before as I was in a rush). And the squirrels were great there were three of them and I could pretty much tell them what to do. Just couldn't get all three of them in one shot. Thanks for the CC. Keep it coming.

    I fixed 10 really quick...

    I am going to DC at the end of February. Hope I do as well. I am excited about the trip, upgraded my D40 to a D90 with two new lens's for the trip.

    wow, your squirrels are way bushier than ours.

    as a critique, I would say try to keep the horizon in your frame. I like having a frame of reference so that I know where I'm looking.

    the tilt in #1 bugs me a little.

    3, 4, and 5 are fantastic!

    well done.

    Thanks for the trip back. Used to live there.

    The first of your photos that made me stop and look is #5. Interesting crop and angle. Then, #6. I'm thinking this is Capitol Hill but not sure.

    And #7 totally stumps me. No idea what that is. I guess it could have been added after I left. What is it?
