    I was hoping to get a few landscapes shots of this, but the Wall was under construction. If you ever get a chance to visit DC, check out this and other monuments; they are wonderful!

    The one with the Monument reflected in the wall is really great. Nice work.

    I agree. I also love that first shot, the angle is excellent. How do you go about that sort of angle? Do you just kneel down, or get the camera on the floor?

    Jonmikal........wow. I really like the whole series. Your angle is very interesting. It gives a whole new look to one of the most photographed monuments in DC. I don't even need to say how cool the second one is with the reflection of the Washington Memorial.

    Lights, reflections, shadows, angles.... you seem to have it down pretty darn good.

    thanks much!

    mad - after I knelt, I realized I needed to get lower, so I lowered the camera to an inch above ground and snapped. got lucky with lining it up.

    thanks again to all!
