This is a local landmark, a cenotaph which, unusually, is off a lane in the middle of the Oxfordshire countryside and nowhere near a town.
I did the shoot late evening on June 28th 2006
The cenotaph is on a slight rise and surrounded by hills.
This was part of a set I did where I endeavored to show a well known local landmark using unusal angles and lighting.

Hi Jack, welcome to EPZ. This is interesting, looks to me like you have dropped the levels right back to leave the cenotaph in silhouette.

Seems to work pretty well. This could benefit from a cropping in from the left and a slight crop from the bottom.

Hi Paul, thanks for the welcome and critique. I didn't alter the levels in post-production but rather carefully selected the correct time of day and position of the sun in order to set exposure levels to get the effect I was after ( Iwas very fortunate with the clouds).
I agree fully with what you say about cropping the picture to detract from the ground and therefore bring the subject more to the fore. In the case of this image I didn't do that as the shots were taken for a technique assignment and had to be exhibited as taken.
