Another shot from my photo walk with the photography workshop. How do you take an interesting photo of something like this memorial that’s so iconic that it’s hard to be original? It’s not easy, especially on a day with relatively boring light. I tried to make this more interesting with the processing (mostly adjusting contrast in the foreground and adding texture to the clouds to the sky), although the angle is totally conventional.
Click on the photo to see it much larger. It’s interesting how the perspective and panoramic distortion make the the circle of plaques into a straight line, and the convergent lines on the pavement look roughly parallel! I took this panorama a while ago, but only got around to putting it together now…
A name on a plague has a different meaning to everyone.
