I decided to experiment a bit with settings and styles and shoot later in the day.
Cherry Blossoms in the foreground and the Washington Monument in the background.
This picture took a bit of trial and error until it came out like I intended. The technique used to get both the forground and background exposed is called “slow sync flash” where you combine a slow shutter and flash.
