The treatment provides a ghostly, almost other worldly appearance to the monument, Jeff. It is a very creative image which makes me wonder if you have captured Washington’s spirit within the abstract.

Ron's thoughts are exactly in tune with mine when viewing this scene, Jeff. I too can see from your creation the aura present at this monument, suggesting an ethereal spirit connection........

Marvelous ghostly effect, Jeff. I can only echo what Ron and Carol have said-a very spiritual experience viewing this.
A lovely and creative vision.
