A sombre celebration to those killed in the First World War, the Canadian monument at Vimy Ridge. A sentiment of the future with the young child in yellow. New life on old graves.

drama to the image Ron.

A place that I know well, my great uncle fought there. Easter Sunday, 9th April 1917, 'the best scrap that ever I was in' he said in a letter home while recovering from being shot in the face.
I like the way you have seen this, the composition carries the tension between looking up in hope and looking down in sorrow. There's a good Wikipedia article here, scroll down the page and it includes an explanation of the symbolism of the sculptures.
The child adds poignancy, I would get rid of the bit of figure creeping in on the right.

Monumental. The figure adds the scale, and a very imposing perspective, Ron.
