Finding Color in Washington DC

I have continued to search through my archives to present images I had not finished before. In this set, I present several shots that show how colorful the city can be. Using water, such as the Potomac River and the Tidal Basin, can help to exaggerate color through reflections where colorful light is mirrored below the subject itself. What do you think of this set?
