    Yes. Still think that this needs to be in B & W - that's the version I go for. Lifting the shadows and, I think, bringing up the whiteness of the crosses gives it more 'sparkle' and 'pop'. Interested to know what's actually happening here. Is this an event of some sort?

    Thanks, Donald. Check out my blog, which contains a link to the site belonging to the folks that bring out this memorial every week.

    Thank you. That was very informative. I never knew about the memorial.

    A very unusual and interesting shot. It has great depth, and I like the way the crosses stand out so much. The B+W is better. Well done.

    As eNo says above, have a look at his blog - he provides the link at the bottom of his post - and from there you get a link to the site of those who are responsible for the memorial. It's worth reading.

    Excellent, simply excellent. Definitely best as B&W.
