    thank you for the comments
the main one suggest that i should crop out the lh side and scaffolding.
the scaffolding was left in as the area has been a major construction site with access to the cenotaph barred . we had to use another site for last years parade and i wanted to show that the cenotaph was now restored but still in a constructions site. the guards leaving the area is suymbolic of the day having "remembered " we have now departed and left the symbols of remembrance for all to see.

    Would like to see a closer crop of the memorial.

    Love the memorial and the light on it but the scaffolding tears away my attention.

    An image full of contrasts. Guard duty is certainly over for both the fallen and the current guard. The sharp structure contrasted with the moody reflection could be read as a metaphor of war. Nicely done.

    Unfortunately the guards are lost in the shadows. I would consider cropping everything on the left and making it a portrait aspect ratio because the monument and the reflection are interesting.

    this was chosen for the contrast of wet and dry.
we had torrential rail and hailstones hammering down for about 15 minutes . the participants and the many spectators stood firm together.
