Thanks, Judy! It was surprising to see how much stuff was floating on the surface, when I edited the image.

Thank you, folks, for checking it out, and your comments!
I went back into DC today, to the same general area (the famous cherry blossoms are hitting peak this week!) but the sky was not nearly as pretty as yesterday... no water reflection shots, but hopefully one or two others to share!

Thank you, Christine! The colors needed a little push to pop, but I loved the silky feel of the water's surface, at 1/30th second! I got another, aimed directly under the bridge (no sunset color at all, as a result) that is really cool (I think) as a B/W image...

Thank you, Tom & Shawn! I used this image to create a "darkroom" image in April... we'll see if it gets a favorable nod ;)

Thank you, Angela! I used this to create my "Fusion" finalist as well. I just love the undulating curves on the water's surface.
