I really like this as a composition, especially the inclusion of the shadow on the left which almost seems independent of the sculpture. Having spent a day there, albeit some years ago, I found this to be the most moving of all the memorials except Shot at Dawn; you have confirmed my opinion. There are a couple of extraneous marks visible top right that could do with removing electronically, but I can easily ignore them as the main interest lies elsewhere. A very fine pinhole photo.

Thank you for taking the time to view and comment Bill, much appreciated.

There are quite a few extraneous marks that could do with being removed electronically, that's Fomapan for you, I used to spend a lot of time spot healing all imperfections on my film scans but I no longer bother on any taken with my pinhole camera, for me it's part of the charm.
