I liked how this composition had branches framing the Monument, a main branch hiding the far edge of the Tidal Basin, and a full reflection.

Many thanks, folks! I spent the morning from sun-up til about noon, shooting around the Tidal Basin, and this is probably one of my two favorites from that day.

Chris, I think this is my favorite from your Tidal Basin shoot. I really like the way the cherry tree bisects the image right at the horizon. Really works because it makes this image different from the normal cherry tree shots in DC.

I agree completely, Don... Thanks!! As you and I circled the Tidal Basin that morning, I kept an eye out for large gaps in the tree branches that would frame the monument---this was the best I found, with the shore-hiding branch leaving the water exposed.
