Washington, D.C. Cherry Tree photos

It was a drizzly gray day so I manilpulated these in Photoshop CS4. Cherry Tree festival seemed early this year.

Panorama of Washington Monument

Taken from the steps of the Jefferson Memorial with 5 shots from Fuji S5 Pro Camera.

It was very overcast yesterday so I bumped up the saturation in Photoshop with adjustments and Lucisart.  Photoshop CS4 stitched them together for a Pano.  I think it looks pretty good at full file size. Click to see it a bit larger.
