Nice angle. The sky is interesting. As per my understanding I will crop a bit in the front and left of the image.   Posted: 06/08/2022 20:28:18

Whenever I see a sky like this I want to convert to image to monochrome. I agree with Pinaki about the cropping.   Posted: 06/13/2022 14:47:57

Phyllis, very elaborated monument. The presence of people adds dimension to it. It is sharp. Agree with the B&W interpretation (I used one of the Silver Effex 3 presets), but I cropped it tighter in a panorama fashion that suits better the shape of the memorial   Posted: 06/17/2022 09:12:14

Nice capture. I like the crop and B&W suggestions. In the original the sky appears to dominate the actual memorial.   Posted: 06/19/2022 19:35:32

A very nice depiction of the monument and the curved shape adds to the impact. As others hace suggested the sky is dominant rather than the monument so I would crop at least 1/3 of the sky.   Posted: 06/23/2022 10:50:14
