This is my gallery of Washington from about two weeks ago. We were lucky - the blossoms were perfect.

The equipment:
Nikon D40
AF-S 35mm f1.8G
Sunpak PlatinumPlus circular polarizer (last-minute buy)

One of my goals was to test this this bargain polarizer. I wasn't sure it would work at all, but I think it turned out quite well for $20 optics.

Where could I have improved these shots?

(Props to Jake O'Connell for bringing me here! It takes forever to get good feedback from Digital Photography Review.)

Exposing yourself infront of the white house can result in your diddly get picked off by a sniper. LOL

Their aim isn't that good.

Any thoughts on the quality of the photos?

Got some nice shots in there..but nothing spectacular to really capture the eye.

Looks like most of the photos were Candid. Try and visualize the shots more before you press the shutter button. Too many random things were cut off.

The pic with the Washington Monument didn't need that distraction of another statue.

A few pics were blurry.

They actually are candid - most were shot on the run, so I could keep up with the group. I wish I'd had more time to compose.
