Hi Everyone,

I finally found the view I was looking for. I didn't realize you could climb up the Netherlands Carillon tower in Arlington. Unfortunately, the tower closes at 8 pm and I couldn't get a night shot. Anyway, here's a shot that I took from up there. I cropped the upper half of the picture so it's not a true panorama. Comments welcome. thanx

Here's a night shot that I managed to get off one of the highways in Arlington. This is the only view I could find without any obtrusive street lamps. I wish I had a higher view point but what can you do. Comments welcome

I'm always a sucker for panoramas, so I like the first one the best: it's a really nice shot.

I like the night shot as well, but it needs a slight anti-clockwise rotation to straighten the buildings up. Apologies for being pedantic about that, but my photos almost always end up being slightly "right hand side down" no matter how hard I try: so it's something I tend to notice.

Just call me a grumpy-old-man yours, John

Thanks for the comments John. I think you are right about the rotation. Good eye

I love stitch. When I am in the mountains or in the city, everytime I try to take several photos and stitch them together. I like your pics but I do not know if it´s only in my eye, but the last one is a little bit / .

Good work

Second pic is a true stunner with last rays of day illuminating the underside of the bridge arches.
