Their expressions are captivating - three superbly captured images of these reminders of the 'not so good old days'.

Instant award, right up my street. The combination of sculpture (hard, enduring) and the fleeting moment of raindrops...

Superb, Tony. The tight crop concentrates the mind. And it's a super b&w.

Superbly complementary treatment in the lead, Tony. Standing strong and together whatever the struggle, here represented by the rain.

Emotive images Tony. The lead has the children's faces covered by tears (the rain), the monument commemorates those left behind as well as those who never returned. (At first I wondered what children had to to with Defence of the realm, the versions complete the story.

PS spelling of Defence.....?

agree with the above that it is a great mono... in addition to that you caught the raindrops spot on.
which I found out myself is not as easy to do as one would think..

Excellent imagery and narrative Tony. The children of the fallen workers are part of the story and would have suffered...

Thank you for sharing this Tony.

Very nice work Tony a very good friend now passed away was the Marketing Director of Lever Bros..

A very special shot Tony! The light highlighting the faces of the children, the rain drops covering the image (I wonder if that was a windshield or a multiple exposure). Outstanding composition and processing!
