I have revisited the raw files and played around a little with them in lightroom. All recropped and lights levels, contrast and sharpening

v1

D2xs
17-55mm @ 35mm
f/8.0
1/160 sec
iso 100

The soldier is pointing through the gap which has the following inscription inscribed on it

"Through this space a shaft of sunlight fallson the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month"

v2

D2xs
17-55mm @ 26mm
f/2.8
1/2000 sec
iso 100

This isn't the same shot as yesterday, but the next in sequence. It addresses some of the issues with the original

17-55mm @ 44mm
f/6.3
1/640 sec
iso 100

Another angle on v2

I will be away for the weekend, and will be slow at answering and saying thank you, but will be able to read comments on my iPhone

i am no expert but i think this set is better than yesterdays. From begining to end the order sits better,the poignancy of shot at dawn seems more complete. thank you Neil and family.

First of all please ignore my first mod as it is the one I did yesterday. Oops!
Indeed another good set of images all well exposed. On V3 I would have liked a little more space on the right to place the column closer to a third. V2 just needs a touch of straightening to remove lens distortion which I have attempted in my mod. V4 is a great alternative to yesterday's version and I really can't fault it.
Great work once again.
Phil

Thanks Phil, I was aware of the distortion, but don't have the knowledge to correct it. In v3 I would also have liked more space, but it wasn't there Smile I cropped it asbest s I could to give as much space as I could, but I accept and understand your point.

Thank you for comments on v4

It was a series of shots taken while wandering around waiting for people to arrive. I wish I had had more time and my 10-24 lens with me

Ah yes, I think we have all been somewhere at some point with the wrong lens. Very frustrating!
