Post-Processing: Slight straightening, cropped, brought out detail and fine-tuned colour using Topaz.       Extra Info: The Cenotaph, Ottawa. A time to reflect and to be thankful for the peace that we have.

    fc - I hesitated to crop the left hand side because I wanted to include the lights in order to hint at the extent of the decorations. There are over a dozen trees in the area, all covered in the same muted shades of blue, green and purple. It really is striking. Bernie, This was the only angle that offered an unobstructed view of the monument while including the Christmas lights.

    Just kept coming back to this one. Maybe it is the sternly diagonal composition? Perhaps it is the weird lights? Anyway a good match to the theme.

    I would have cropped the far left building out of the picture. this would have helped to reduce the plain black part of the sky.

    A fine choice of subject, but am not a fan of the composition. Would it have been possible to have taken this from about 25 degrees to the left to get more of the archway, and also to move it further away from the center? I do like the way you captured the lighting/shadows on the monument.

    I was really taken with the way the lighting around this monument was handled. I really had the impression that this was not a glorification of war, but a reminder of the terrible cost it exacts.

    The monument and background are so well exposed, I find the intrusion of the Christmas lighting a decided negative - though I get the point; in my favourites.

    At first glance, I didn't think much of this image. Then after coming back to it, I realized that it is actually a great photo. Impressive, stark, balanced and interesting play of light. A top favorite.
