Awesome!  I'm seriously impressed by how well the point cloud renders the DC cityscape.

Mind my asking what kind of aerostat you're using?

Just curious, what are the regs on flying a tethered camera in DC?  I also do aerial photography, and I've got family there.  No real plans to visit at the moment, but if I ever do get the chance, it'd be nice to know if it's ok to do aerial photography while I'm there.  (The last time I did photography in DC, I unwittingly set up my tripod in a no tripod zone, and had a particularly un-fun run-in with security.  Figured I'd ask this time.)

That shot of the Jefferson Memorial surrounded by blossoms made the whole synth for me.  Beautiful work.

It is an absolute mess to fly in this city. Months if not half a year of paper work.  Happy to shoot for you if you like.
