This is my favorite shot from D.C. I took it standing in front of the Washington monument and maxed my zoom to 300mm. I wanted to use the lights on the left to guide the viewer all the way to the Capitol building. The woman with the red bag was just icing on the cake...as well as a reference point for scale. She is almost identical in size as the monument on the top of the Capitol building.
