Peacekeepers and the National Gallery

Again, I thought the image of silhouettes was more intriguing than an image with everything in detail.

    I like the use of silhouette in this photo. It effectively conveys the image of peacekeepers on watch. A niggly point, but perhaps crop by an eight of an inch at the top to hide the small bit of flag in the top right which distracts the eye,

    I like the strong silhouetted shapes of the soldiers complemented by the dark blues of the evening sky. For me, I would have cropped out the gallery and the flag pole on the right – these shapes seem to detract from the main subject of the soldiers. Also, there appears to be a flagpole sticking out of the head of one of the soldiers, another one on the extreme left and branches of a tree next to the illuminated side wall of the statue. I would attempt to eliminate these distracting items either by changing the camera angle before shooting or via post-processing.
