  • The flag with the sun behind it is looking awesome.

  • Nice job of fitting the momument. Perfect with all the flags standing out in the breeze.

  • Yeah, the monument is so big it requires a bit of neck ache to fit it all in from that viewing distance. Keeping the sun behind the flag gives you very little room for maneuver too in terms of the composition but it creates such a great atmosphere in the image its a must. So the camera has to stay in a fixed position to get the sun and the monument right. This means the little people at the bottom who would ideally clear the skyline more clearly have to kind of fit into visual gaps as they pass you cant move to get them right. I was hoping a person would pass by closer to me but the cold did in the low camera battery and the spare was in the car so that was it after a couple of frames! JC
