    Finally got to visit Washington DC for the first time earlier this week. Was there for work, but had a chance to get out for a couple of walks around the city. So much to photograph. Would love to get back there sometime.

    Here are a few of my favorites. Would love any comments or suggestions.

    I like #4 the most... I like the captured snow falling, very recognisable backdrop with some activity in the foreground. Horizon seems slightly tilted though.

    Thanks hazwing - I had a heckuva time trying to get that picture straight, and looking at it again now, I definitely didn't get it right. I think the angle I shot it from is adding to the problem. Here's another shot at it - better?

    Looks like you found the perfect time to take those shots. No mob and all views :)

    I guess nobody else wanted to be out walking around in the snow and cold temps, but being from Wisconsin, 30 degrees and snowing felt warm ;)
